1 John 4:10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
We weren’t sitting around thinking about loving God before He touched our lives.
God began the process before we were even born. He sent His Son to bring us into communion with Him, and His Spirit drew us into relationship with Him.
We respond to God’s overwhelmingly tender love when we invite Jesus into our lives.
Even so, many years of obedience show our gratitude, but they never repay His loving compassion.
