Thankful for God’s Love

Re:Verse reading–2 Corinthians 12:1-10 (Day Five)   

Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may dwell in me.

Why was Paul thankful (glad) for the love of God? Because God’s love does what needs to be done in order to point us to and give us the greater/greatest thing- Himself thru a relationship with Jesus.

God worked in Paul’s heart until he saw enough of God the Father and enough of God the Son, Jesus Christ, that he knew and felt that God’s love was not ultimately for health in his body. It is to bring him into an intimate relationship with Jesus.

Are you thankful for that kind of love?

One thought on “Thankful for God’s Love”

  1. God’s love through Jesus Christ is the controlling force of one’s life. I believe when and if we turn into a wrong path, it will be the love of God that will constrain, hold us back, and put us in God’s way of life and truth. I will leave with the readers this love quote as I thought it explains the value of mutual love and why we should be thankful for God’s love, “To love someone is nothing, to be loved by someone is something, but to be loved by the one you love is everything.”~Bill Russell

    God loves us and if we love Him too or vice versa, it will be everything! There is no reason to be in Heaven with God if we have no relationship with Jesus.
