God’s Love

“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.” (Psalm 136 1)

Psalm 136 makes the statement, “for his steadfast love endures forever,” 26 times (once in each verse). We are to give thanks for God’s love:

Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods, for his steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords, for his steadfast love endures forever;
Give thanks to the God of heaven, for his steadfast love endures forever.

Several reasons are given—for His work in creation (4-9), for His protection over Israel (10-22) and for His help for all of us (23-25). When the Bible repeats something over and over, it must be important. We are to stop each day (in fact several times during the day) and thank God for His steadfast love! God’s Love is the central theme of the Bible. The most quoted verse in the Bible, John 3:16, talks about this: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

And God did not love us because we are loveable, in fact we were His enemy: God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)

We need to understand that God is Love (1 John 4:7-12) and this love should cause us to show His love to others. From Genesis to Revelation, the theme is "God is love" and He desires that we allow His love to be in seen in us that know Him as Savior. Let’s be thankful for God’s Love and as a result let us live in a way that demonstrates His love.

Question: Have you experienced the Love of God by accepting His love gift of Jesus?

Challenge: Spend time today and read through Psalm 136. Let it help you be God’s love to someone else.

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, for your steadfast love to me each day. Help me to be thankful each day for this love and allow me to show your love to others.
