Grounded in Love 
"We love Him because He first loved us."  I John 4:19

You and I are so loved by God that He provided the means for us to know Him personally through a relationship with Jesus Christ His Son. 

It is in Christ that we discover true love.  As John writes: "And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him." I John 4:16. 

God's love "has been perfected among us" revealing amazing things that we can rejoice in...

-Because of God's love we can have boldness in the day of judgment. (I John 4:17)
-Because of God's love there is no place for fear. (I John 4:18)
-Because of God's love we can have love for others. (I John 4:21)
-Because of God's love we can know the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19)

Beyond our comprehension, there is a love so great.  His love that undergirds; that surrounds; that bears, believes, hopes and endures; that never fails!  His love is pursuing us, calling us to run into His arms so we can be grounded now and forever - in love!

"As the Father has loved Me, so have I loved you. Now remain in My love." John 15:9
