Love God The Same Way He Loves Us

July 1 // 1 Corinthians 8:20-21

We love Him because He first loved us. I John 4:19
How does God love us? First God loves us as we are, he places no condtions to His love for us. And that no matter what we do, God will choose to love us as we are. God also died for us on the cross so that our sins are forgiven, and in the Garden of Gethsemane, He was wrestling with the thought of not dying for our sins. But He chose to die for us. God chose to give His love away to people around Him. He spread the love of God the lost, poor, and needy. He showed love to anyone and everyone. The question God asks is, can you love me the same way I love you?
How can I love God the same way He loved me? He gave the ultimate price for me so that I can have eternal life. I need to realize that I need to love people the same way God loves me. I need to love people with a uncondtional love, and accept people as they are. I need to choose to die for the cause of Christ, and to lay down my life for my fellow man. And I must give my love away to a lost, needy and dying world around me. To go beyond the call of duty and go the extra mile to serve people. This is how I can love God the same way he loves me.
Heavenly Father thank you for your word. I ask you to help me love you the same way You loved me. Help me show you my love for you by giving it away. I want to honor you in my life. In Jesus name. Amen.
