Eye on Integrity-Relying on God’s Love

August 7th, 2018 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Eye on Integrity is based on First John 4:16.

And so, we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.”

We would not lean on an object if we questioned its strength to support us. There are various things in this world that may offer us temporary happiness, but they cannot sustain us or support us like the love of God. Here are some of the words used in the Bible to describe God’s love.

Psalm 36:7 says, “How precious is your unfailing love, O God!”

In Psalm 136, God’s steadfast love endures forever.

Ephesians 2:4 describes God’s love as great.

God’s love stands the test of time, carries the weight of all our sin, and never fails us. God’s love is life’s precious gift.

Walking in reliance on God’s love is a virtue to embrace for our lives in the Year of Integrity.
