True Love In D's Wings

So I was eating some delicious lemon pepper chicken wings at D's Wings in Columbia when I saw this profession of love in the booth where I was seated.  Bobby and Danielle wrote on a dollar bill "Always & 4ever", and they had it taped up for everyone to see.  That's how long they plan to be together and love each other.  

That sounds like a good thing.  And I hope they indeed do have a great relationship.  May they spend many happy years together!

The greatest love you and I can ever find, however, is the incredible love God has for us.  There's really nothing quite like it.  In Romans 8, Paul describes it this way:  "What shall separate us from the love of Christ?  Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Yes, it was really cool to see love professed in the wings place.  But it's even greater to see God's love for us professed in scripture.  It's reassuring to know that He loves us unconditionally, sacrificially, and eternally. That's a love that is far greater than anything we will ever find in this world.

Can I give you a little bit of friendly advice?  Let God love you.  Accept it by saying "Yes!" to Jesus and allowing His presence and love to fill your heart.  When you do, I guarantee you it'll be a blessing that is almost indescribable.  His love really is amazing!

Yes, it's true.  God loves you.
