My Whole Life

I was born to reflect the image of a God who is powerful enough to create my universe, attentive enough to hear my prayers and loving enough to be defined by self-sacrifice. I find my greatest fulfillment on a journey toward purpose and wholeness.

Devotional Thought for Today

Agape Love April 20, 2014

Hannah More seems to have understood the essence of agape love. She was a British playwright, philanthropist, and abolitionist. She gave one of the best explanations of this magnificent force called love when she wrote: "Love never reasons, but profusely gives; it gives like a thoughtless prodigal its all, and then trembles lest it has done too little."

     Could it be that this is a description of God's very essence - He profusely gives like a thoughtless prodigal and then stays up all night, worrying He has not given enough? This seems to be what John says about God. The apostle Paul repeats this idea when he writes to the Roman believers that "God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8, NIV). People who give their lives for others have given all they can. This is the measurement of what God has given. It's the measure of how much He loves us.
