The Taj Mahal stands out from the plains of Agra in Northern India. It is a testimony to the love of Shah Jahan for his favorite wife. Built in the 17th century, it took 20,000 workers 16 years to build the world’s most elaborate edifice.
God expressed his love in a different way.
“This is how God showed his love among us: he sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins” (1 John 4:9-10).
Think of all the things God asks of you – surrender, faith, obedience. Is that really too much for God to ask, considering all he has done? You can walk in freedom and victory, but only if you do it God’s way. And that means laying it all down for the one whose Son laid down his life for you.
Recovery Step: God’s love for you is unmistakable. He is deserving of all that you have.
