Romans 5:8 (NLT) — 8 But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

Today two words caught my eye that were repeated twice in our memory verse. The two words are ‘for us’. Everything that God has done has been for us. His great love is for us. On this last day of February (also known as the ‘Love Month’) how could you love for him?

Ephesians 5:1–2 (NLT) — 1 Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.

Be Inspired Hilltop!
