The Bible speaks of a captivating love.
A love that is perfect.
A love we cannot generate on our own.
A love that is beyond our comprehension, yet fully in our grasp if we are willing to receive it.
This love is a gift from a good and gracious heavenly Father. It is a gift to be received. And it is a gift we are privileged to give.
This gift is possible because of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and the power of God’s Holy Spirit.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8
Who among us does not want to experience this love? Who doesn’t want to give and receive this love?
Every day we are surrounded by failed attempts to give and receive love. But, on this day, I urge you to contemplate this perfect love and let your hearts ponder how your life might be changed by captivating love.
