10-5-09 Devotion: How He Loves Us!

I can’t get that song out of my head. I’ve been singing John Mark McMillan’s “How He Loves Us” nonstop since I first heard it this past weekend. The song is genius. The words are unforgettable. The music is captivating. The story behind the song is inspiring. What keeps resonating with me, though, is the reality that God loves me so much more than I can even understand, the fact that He passionately loves me.

If you haven’t heard this song (or even if you have), take a few minutes to listen to it. One of the greatest tactics of the enemy is try to get us to doubt God’s goodness and love for us. Never think for a minute that God doesn’t love you. Like this song says so beautifully, how He loves us! Oh, how He loves us!

“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” 1 John 3:1
