Nigeria News – There is no higher calling known to the human race, no greater privilege, than the honor of being called a child of God. And children of God are loved by Him. In response to that love, we are called and enabled to purify ourselves, just as He is pure. – John 3:1-3
If God loves us and has demonstrated His love to us, then He must expect us to respond. He must expect us to love Him as there is no greater privilege than this.
Love expects to be loved in return. In fact, if someone loves us and we do not receive his love, then his love never touches us. We never experience his love. To know love, we must receive love and share it.
God loves us, but we have to receive His love in order to experience it. We have to enter a loving relationship with God in order to know the love of God. #no greater privilege
There is no greater love than a man should lay down his life for man, if we do not love God, then we can never know or experience God’s love for us. His love will never touch us. It is absolutely essential that we love God if we wish to experience the love of God.
If you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, the Bible says you are a child of God. Do you feel like you are a child of God? Why or why not?
Why, in your own words, is there “no greater subject in the entire world” than the love of God?
Recall a time when you felt rejected. Do you think this rejection your fault, or was it because you are a follower of Jesus?
As we respond to God’s love and to the hope we have in Him, we want to become pure, as He is pure. Do you want to be pure and holy? What is your motive for being pure?
In the next few moments, ask God to begin to purify you as He is pure. [no greater privilege]
Strive today to become a vessel that is pure and ready to be used by Him for noble purposes.
Think about what you can do now to anticipate the day when you will become perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
If holiness in response to God’s love does not appeal to you, ask yourself why that is the case. Ask God to reveal areas of your heart that need His touch.
