      Simplicity of God's Love  

      By Vonette Bright

      "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son." John 3:16

      Cristine headed to hot and humid Central America with her youth group's summer mission project. They would host a two-day children's evangelistic outreach.

      The teens prepared an entire program to illustrate the love of Christ to the children. In spite of hours of practice, things went wrong. But their nervous apprehension melted away when the teens learned to depend upon God.

      The children were wide-eyed. They clamored for the wordless bracelets, which use colors to tell about God's love.  Through smiles and broken Spanish, the teens helped forty children pray to invite Christ into their hearts!  The little ones wanted to hear God's story over and over again.

      Dear one, the simplicity of God's love, not our eloquence or expertise is what touches a person's life.

      Love without Limit  

      By Dr. Bill Bright

      "I have given them the glory You gave Me - the glorious unity of being one, as We are - I in them and You in Me, all being perfected into one - so that the world will know You sent Me and will understand that You love them as much as You love Me” John 17:22,23

      One day, as I was reading this prayer of Jesus to God the Father, I leaped from my chair in excitement when I realized that God loves me as much as He loves His only begotten Son!

      What is more, He loves us unconditionally. That means He loves us not because we are good, or worthy of His love, but simply because of who He is.

      Of course, the miracle of it all is that when Jesus, who is the incarnation of God’s love, comes to live within us, that same supernatural love becomes operative within us, enabling us to love others supernaturally as well.

      Agape (sacrificial, supernatural and unconditional love) is best described in the well-known and oft-quoted 13th chapter of 1 Corinthians:

      “Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud, never haughty or selfish or rude. Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable or touchy. It does not hold grudges and will hardly even notice when others do it wrong. It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever truth wins out. If you love someone you will be loyal to him no matter what the cost. You will always believe in him, always expect the best of him, and always stand your ground in defending him.”

      Bible Reading: John 17:15-21

      Today’s Action Point: When things go wrong today - or any day - I will choose to remember that God loves me just as much as He loves His only begotten Son! And I will tell everyone who will listen about God’s supernatural love for them.
