5/14/14 Daily Devotion

Ephesians 2:4-5 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions–it is by grace you have been saved.

Did Jesus die out of obligation? Did He sacrifice Himself under duress? The answer to both questions is unequivocally, NO. Jesus sacrificed Himself on the cross of Calvary out of love. Love took Jesus to the cross. His love for us brought Him to the willingness of His sacrifice. Jesus died because there was no other way to show us the extent of His love. For His love, we should all be grateful. Because of His love, we should be living our lives powerfully for Him. In honor of His love, we should be showing this world how to find Him. Out of respect for Him, we should become living expressions of His love.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help my life becoming a living expression of Your love.
