June 8, 2021: God of Love
“The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee” (Jer. 31:3, KJV).
My first introduction to the Seventh-day Adventist Church was: “My mother doesn’t eat pork, and she goes to church on Saturday.”
After that startling introduction, I never thought I’d become a member. But when I walked into the Parkersburg church for the first time, I was met with love, the sermon spoke on love and I desired to come back to hear more about this love. Soon, I was encouraged to read the Bible more and join a Scripture memorization class.
It is my prayer that I can also draw those in my sphere of influence with lovingkindness so that they, too, can meet this God of love!
Lord, grant us a kind, loving and generous spirit that will bring others closer to You. Amen.
