God loved us when we had done nothing in return, nothing to earn it. That is true love!
How did God demonstrate and show His love for us? By sending His Son, Jesus Christ, to live a sinless life and pay our penalty of death on the cross. We did nothing to earn it or deserve it. He loved us when we were truly unlovely. As Christians, it is so easy to take the gift of salvation for granted, isn’t it? We start to check out when someone brings it up or we hear a sermon. Take some time today to reflect on just what Jesus did for us on the cross. Think about how much God must love you. He showed us His love when we could do nothing in return and had done nothing to earn it!
One Verse is a short, daily devotional designed to help you grow closer to God through less than 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week.
Consistency trumps intensity. When it comes to working out, eating healthy, or managing our finances, consistency always trumps intensity. We reach our major life goals through small, purposeful steps taken daily. The same is true in our spiritual lives. I truly believe you will grow closer to God by spending just 5 minutes a day with Him versus cramming in an hour once a month. The One Verse Devotional is here to help take away the barriers of spending time with God. Now, during your workout, drive to work, or even shopping for groceries, you can invest in your spiritual life.
