Day 100: Love is Jesus Christ

 

While we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly.—Romans 5:6

 

TODAY’S DARE

Dare to take God at His Word. Dare to trust Jesus Christ for salvation. Dare to pray, “Lord Jesus, I’m a sinner. But You have shown Your love for me by dying to forgive my sins, and You have proven Your power to save me from death by Your resurrection. Lord, change my heart, and save me by Your grace.”

 

-- Day 100, wow, hard to believe!  This dare was a good reminder for me today - the fact that Father God is always willing to love me even in times that I don’t deserve it, even when I don’t always love back. He sees all of my imperfections and still chooses to love me. His love made the greatest sacrifice to meet my greatest need. As a result, I am able (by His grace) to walk in the fullness and blessing of His love. Now and forever! In turn, I can now share this same love with my wife, as I am commanded to. I can love her even when I am not loved in return. I can see her flaws and imperfections and still choose to love her. And though I know I cannot meet all of MB’s needs the way God can, I can become His instrument to meet the needs of my wife by showing God’s love through me. As a result, she can walk in the fullness and blessing of my love when her will allows it. I believe it is just a matter of time till it is recognized as Christ opens her eyes and heart.
