Know God's Love

If you've been around Lightglider Academy for a little while now, you know how important it is for us to be going out, serving, supporting and sacrificing for others. Our ultimate mission is to be a sample of God's love wherever we go. But before we can go out and do good work, we must, as the Scripture says, prepare and equip ourselves through the reading and understanding of God's word.

Have you ever tried to teach someone to do something before you have learned it yourself? That would be like giving directions to someone on how to play a game without knowing first the rules, what equipment is necessary, and how many players you'll need! It probably won't turn out the way it was intended. Before you can express God's love to the world, I want you to know it and know it well.

The Bible is God's love letter to us. It teaches us what is true and tells us how God demonstrated His love for us. He sent Jesus to rescue us from the disease of sin. And the more you understand how deadly it is, the more you will appreciate the cure that God has given us through Jesus. There is no limit to God's love!

Remind yourself daily how greatly you are loved. Pick out a Bible verse that will help remind you. Here is mine:

And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
~Ephesians 3:18-19 (NLT)

What Bible verse will you use as a reminder of God's love for you?
