For God So Loved the World …
If you don’t see the video imbed, try this link to David Crowder’s How He Loves.
Listen carefully to these words. They are the words of the beloved for his lover, about a passionate love which embodies sacrifice and salvation. A Great Romance!
Not just a sweet affection, a compromising partnership or even attraction because, well, we think someone’s hot. This is LOVE. Agape love. All powerful, consuming love. But not a consumption that leaves one bare. More like the burning bush—on fire, yet leaving the tree intact, allowing it to light the way for those who come near.
That kind of love.
The love of our Creator for His created. The love of our Savior for His saved. Surpassing any expectation we can imagine from that of a spouse.
While preparing to write this devotion, I bypassed the highly produced video created by professionals with cool special effects. Why? Because something spoke to me in the picture of two guys humbly playing guitar and singing while the crowd around them joined in. They all knew the truth. He loves us. And what a truth it is!
What does this love mean to you?
He Enters Our Pain
Lord of All Creation
