THEME: GOD LOVES YOU

MEMORISE: And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Ephesians 3:19

READ: Deuteronomy 7:12-15
12Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the LORD thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:

13 And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee.

14 Thou shalt be blessed above all people: there shall not be male or female barren among you, or among your cattle.

15 And the LORD will take away from thee all sickness, and will put none of the evil diseases of Egypt, which thou knowest, upon thee; but will lay them upon all them that hate thee.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 1-3

MESSAGE
Right from the beginning of the Scriptures in Genesis 1, you would observe love in action. The love of God for man is so great and deep that He created this world for it. In Genesis 1, God did not create man until He had created everything else that man needed to live comfortably here on earth. Scientists agree that the earth is created in such a manner that everything in it makes it conducive for man to live in it. We cannot quantify the extent of God’s love for man. The Psalmist said in Psalm 8:4,
“What is man, that thou are mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him?”

The Scripture above makes it clear that even right now, God is mindful of you. He loves you so much that He said in Isaiah 49:16,
“Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.”

God’s love for us is great! This love is so great that it extends to every strand of hair on your head. He has given each strand of hair on your head a number, such that when one drops while you are combing it, He is aware of the particular strand that dropped (Matthew 10:30).

I just want you to know how much God loves you. You must know this love to be able to enjoy a fruitful walk with Him. The knowledge of God’s love for you is what makes your walk with Him effective. You must begin to believe His love for you so you can really experience joy. Everyone else may reject you, but not God. He will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). I am sure you have an idea of the kind of attachment a mother has to her child, especially when the child is still suckling. Isaiah 49:15 says that even if a suckling mother forgets her child, God will never forget you. Oh, such great love!

Even if you are still living in sin, I want you to know that He loves you (Romans 5:8)

He loves you so much that He will not stop calling you to come back into His marvelous light. Please heed His call today. It doesn’t matter how badly you have sinned, He will receive you with a warm hug when you come back home. Jesus loves you.

KEY POINT
Nothing ever take away God’s love for you. Nothing!

HYMN30: Wonderful Story of Love

  1. Wonderful story of love!
    Tell it to me again;
    Wonderful story of love!
    Wake the immortal strain.
    Angels with rapture announce it,
    Shepherds with wonder receive it;
    Sinner, O won’t you believe it?
    Wonderful story of love!

Refrain:
Wonderful! Wonderful!
Wonderful story, Wonderful story of love!

  1. Wonderful story of love!
    Though you are far away;
    Wonderful story of love!
    Still he doth call today.
    Calling from Calvary’s mountain,
    Down from the crystal bright fountain,
    E’en from the dawn of creation;
    Wonderful story of love!
  2. Wonderful story of love!
    Jesus provides a rest;
    Wonderful story of love!
    For all the pure and blest;
    Rest in those mansions above us,
    With those who’ve gone on before us,
    Singing the rapturous chorus;
    Wonderful story of love!
