1. SOMETHING FOR YOUR HEART
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
Happy Week After Valentine's Week. Or Happy Making Fun of Valentine's Week Week. Some people just can't stand the hype leading up to the biggest greeting card day of the year. Others can't wait to get some candy love!
Either way, the PW Daily Devo is here for you. Call this week's devotionals our valentine to you -- or the ultimate anti-Valentine. We're cool both ways, as long as you're cool digging into some verses about God's giant, expensive, expressive, impressive love for His children.
For starters, we're absolutely convinced that God has proved His love for us way before we could do anything to make ourselves lovable. As today's verse points out, He gave His Son to make it possible for us to live with Him forever. Do you need more evidence?
Think: Do you ever wonder if God really loves you? Are you convinced that His gift of the life of Jesus in your place is a demonstration of His forever love for you? Why or why not?
Pray: Thank God that He demonstrated His own love for us by sending Christ to die for us when we were still sinners.
Read: See how huge this idea really is when you read Romans 5:1-11.
