We love, because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19
God initiated! It was He who made the first move in this relationship. Left to my own devices, I would have been lost and lacking in every way. The Bible says that I love because the love of God has been poured into my life and He Himself abides in me. Truly, its like Jesus said, rivers of living water now flow from my life. And He is the reason.
Have I realized and can I say “behold what manner of love the Father has given unto us”? Yes! I know it, because I know myself before coming into a relationship with Christ.
God, I commit today to let this abounding love flow into my life and through my life to others. Like streams of living water, I say “flow river flow”.
