Love Devotional: Monday – Week 1

SoL_Ad-Day1


Week 1, Day 1 : Think Back

LOVE LOVES TO LOVE & THE REWARD OF LOVE IS LOVE…Misty Edwards.

When God narrated His story to Moses of how human beings first came into existence on this planet; He didn’t explicitly give a reason why He did it and Moses didn’t ask.

In fact, after God had made everything on this planet, then he said….
“Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish….the livestock…..the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”… The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. Gen 1:26; 2:15

At first glance to me it seems like God made mankind for them take care of His perfect creation; like gardeners taking care of their master’s garden. But the key word in Gen 1:26 is RULE and throughout the generations God’s hidden intentions for putting us here on this planet were revealed little by little until it reached it pinnacle when God himself became a man to show us why?

Today, I want us to think back to what our pastors, teachers, disciplers, parents, or what we discovered ourselves (in the bible) about Why God created us (man)?

Find or review some of the scriptures that you know on this and see if it aligns or go against the outcome of this week’s devotion; “We were created BY Love, THROUGH Love & FOR Love.”
We will unfold this quote throughout this week.

SCRIPTURE MEDITATION
Ephesians 1:4-6 – For he (God) chose us in him BEFORE the creation of the world to be HOLY and blameless in his sight. In LOVE he PREDESTINED us for ADOPTION to SONSHIP through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his PLEASURE and WILL, to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.

PRAYER FOCUS
God open the eyes of my heart to see into your heart and your thoughts and intentions towards me. To know this is to know you and to know you is to know who I really am. For I know my life is hidden in you and it’s your good pleasure to make it known to me if I seek you. Amen.
