I’ll make a covenant with them that will last forever, a covenant to stick with them no matter what, and work for their good. I’ll fill their hearts with a deep respect for me so they’ll not even think of turning away from me.
1 JOHN 4:9 (MSG)
This is how God showed his love for us: God sent his only Son into the world so we might live through him.
God's love for us is unstoppable.
Even though God's love is unstoppable and always directs us toward the best of life, it is never forced.
Glorious God, your love for us—for me—is unstoppable. You are the original Energizer Bunny who keeps going and going. I'm unworthy but grateful. Forgive me for the times when I look elsewhere for affection in my life. Help me to know your love more deeply and share it more liberally. I'm going to live the Christ-life. Amen.
Our Father in Heaven,
we hold your name in the highest regard.
Please come and establish your reign here on earth
so that everything that happens here will align
with what is happening in heaven.
and we’ll forgive those who have wronged us.
Shield us from the trials and temptations that come our way.
Lastly, we pray that you would protect us from all forms of evil. Amen!
