Christ's Love Changes Everything

Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God. He is your life. 

Colossians 3:3 MSG

Christ's love is perfect and steadfast. Even though we are fallible and wayward, the Good Shepherd cares for us still. What does the love of Christ mean to His believers? It changes everything. Even though we have fallen far short of the Father's commandments, Christ loves us with a power and depth that is beyond our understanding. And, as we accept Christ's love and walk in Christ's footsteps, our lives bear testimony to His power and to His grace. Yes, Christ's love changes everything; may we invite Him into our hearts so it can
then change everything in us.

Jesus is all compassion. He never betrays us.
Catherine Marshall

Live your lives in love, the same sort of love which Christ gives us, and which He perfectly expressed when He gave Himself as a sacrifice to God.
Corrie ten Boom

So Jesus came, stripping himself of everything as he came—omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence—everything except love. "He emptied himself " (Philippians 2:7), emptied himself of everything except love. Love—his only protection, his only weapon, his only method.
E. Stanley Jones

He loved us not because we're lovable, but because He is love.
C. S. Lewis

Today's Prayer

Dear Jesus, my life has been changed forever by Your love and sacrifice. Today I will praise You, I will honor You, and I will walk with You. Amen
