Thought of the Day August 1, 2018 God's love

By 2:22 PM

Even when he disciplined Israel God showed his love.
God loves the righteous and the poor, the lowly and the       

God's love is beautifully expressed in Ho 2:16-22: "So I will 

allure her; I will lead her into the desert and speak to her 

heart....I will make a covenant with them on that day...I will 

espouse you to me forever; I will espouse you in right and 

justice, in love and mercy. I will espouse you in fidelity and 

you shall know the Lord."

God's love is seen in his patience with the people of the Old 

Covenant and in his patience with us. 2 Pet 3:8-9

God's love is seen in Eph 2:3-8

God's love is seen in the person of the Word that became 

flesh for us. "God so loved the world that he sent his son that 

whoever believes may not die but have eternal life." Jn 3:16

"The love of God has been poured out in our hearts through 

the Holy Spirit who has been given to us." (Rom 5:5

God's love is seen in the death of Jesus on the cross. "Greater 

love has no one than to lay down his life for his friends." Jn 


God's love is made undeniably explicit as Paul tells us: "It is 

precisely in this that God proves h is love for us: that while we

were still sinners, we were reconciled to him by the death of

his son." Rom 5:8

Whether we acknowledge any of this or not, it is uncontestably 

true. This is how good God has been and is and will be.
