The Love of a Father

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. (John 13:34)”

In order to love others fully, we must know how deeply and everlasting our Father loves us.  There are so many aspects of His love…and when I dwell on all the ways He has loved me, is loving me, and will love me…love starts pouring out of me to others.  When I don’t feel loved, it is so hard to love.  I am starting to see that my ability to love others doesn’t really have to do with the particular people…but rather how much I feel loved by the Father in that particular moment.  May I know how deeply, fully, and everlasting His love is…so that I might POUR out His love to everyone He brings into my life.  They are worthy of His love…we are fearfully and wonderfully made by our loving Father in Heaven.
