God's Eager & Ardent Desire // Sunday, August 10
Posted: Sunday, August 10
1 Corinthians 6:1-20
Verse of the day:
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. For His lovingkindness is everlasting. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary (Psalm 10:1-2)
This is the recurrent theme of Psalm 107. The psalmist speaks of the steadfast love of God. In Hebrew, the word means an eager and ardent desire and refers to the fact that God's love never gives up.
Stop and think about how God accepts you, how He loves you, how He is deeply concerned about you and will meet you right where you are and take you just as you are. His love does not change a bit whether you are a failure or a success. It does not make any difference to Him how you appear in the eyes of others. God loves you; He is concerned about you and has already received you, already given you all that he can give in Jesus Christ. Begin to rejoice in that fact. You will find that love will set you free so that you can act upon the power and liberty God gives.
Then use that power and liberty to engage others and tell them how much Gods loves them and wants to do for them what he has done for you.
