Happy Day of Love!

“He determined to love you and so gave himself up for you. He fell as a sinner (though he was innocent) into the hands of the living God. Consider the power of the love that motivated him to intentionally plunge himself into a fiery furnace that burned with relentless wrath, bearing in a few short hours and infinity of hellish misery. He bore intense suffering in his body and soul so that he would be granted the right to have you, a redeemed sinner, for his bride.” ~Elise Fitzpatrick, Comforts from the Cross

As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full. ~John 15:9-11

His banner over me is love! ~Song of Solomon 2:4

O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me.  I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them. ~John 17:25-26

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience-among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ. ~Eph.2:1-5

I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. ~Jer. 31:3

In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:9-10

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end. Lam. 3:22

Love Never Ends! ~1 Cor. 13:8
