Christians often take great comfort and joy in God’s words of love to them in Scripture, and rightly so. What child of God is not comforted by Paul’s reminder, “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8)? Or what adopted son or daughter is not enamored with the Savior who says, “I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep” (John 10:14-15)?
There are so many more words of love that God has spoken to his people in his Scriptures, but have you considered the love of God in the mere act of speaking to his people? God has spoken words of love, and he spoke those words of love because there was an already existing love that prompted him to speak. More than that, isn’t it loving of God to give us his words in a way in which we can understand them and receive them with joy? Doesn’t this reveal to us that he wants us to know something of his love, and in return give voice to our love for him?
Have you done that today? Have you given voice to your love for God? Remember, what he has said to his children, “Neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:38-39). What will you say to him?
