We regularly listen and hear about how much God love us and how He demonstrated His love through Jesus Christ. But, how do we respond to God’s incomprehensible love? Romans 5:8 says, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” As recipients, one way to reciprocate His love is to incessantly feed our faith with God’s love through studying and meditating on what God’s Word teaches about His love. Take whatever He says personally. Study God’s Word, make sure it’s for yourself with the intention of applying the Word to your life. A second way to respond to God’s love is to live within His love. To “live” in this context means “remain, stay, dwell, continue”, amongst others. In the words of Jesus He told His then disciples, as well as His present day disciples (us), to “… continue in my love” [John 15:9]. We must resiliently commit ourselves to cultivating an attitude that will keep us consistently conscious of God’s love because our wicked world wants us to be consciously in ‘lust’ with it!
Needless to say, there are numerous ways to respond to God’s love so choose one or two that reflects your personally relationship and remember God’s love is the only place where you’re untouchable, unstoppable, incorruptible, and indestructible. It’s the safest place to be on earth. It’s a place where your struggles to make things happen come to an end. It’s a place where it doesn’t matter how people treat you or what they say about you; but you just keep getting blessed in everything you do, and say, and everywhere you go! It’s really a no ‘brainer’—we should effortlessly respond to God’s love because we’re deeply loved, highly favored, and greatly blessed!
