God didn’t enter the world and subject Himself to crucifixion just so we could keep on living the same old way we would have otherwise. He meant to have an impact on us. Have you let the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ impact your life?
The impact God wants to make is to influence us to live righteously – which is to say, to live by the law of love. He sought to make this impact by first showing us this love so that we would, in turn, show it to others.
We don’t love others just because God tells us to do this. We do it because He first showed this love to us.
Do you want God to have a benefit today for the love He’s shown you for all eternity? Turn to Him now and let His loving eyes follow you all day long – and let Him be pleased by what He sees.
