"So I will very gladly spend for you everything
I have and expend myself as well. If I love you more, will you love me less?"
(2 CORINTHIANS 12:15)
Likewise, Paul gives up his life for his “children” in the faith.
God’s love has been a costly love, one that truly has given until it hurts. How agonizing it would have been for the Father to put all His wrath on His Son. And how tormenting for the Son to be separated from His Father. The Holy Spirit still grieves each time His love is rejected or ignored.
When we love, we often experience the same sense of being ignored or rejected. But God gives love out “abundantly” no matter what is received in return. Today you may have to give the love of Christ until it hurts. Do not be surprised if it does hurt. But do not be discouraged either, for your Savior and Redeemer joyfully gave everything He had so that He could call you His own.
2 Corinthians 12:14-15
NEVER STOP SHOWING LOVE. THE LOVE OF CHRIST IN YOU WILL CHANGE LIVES, INCLUDING YOUR OWN.
