The first SPORTMOM E-votional of each month is dedicated to our 2018 word for the year…PURSUE!
We are born pursuing love.
The first whimpers of a newborn baby are calmed by the loving arms of a mother. The longing to be loved is a natural desire of human beings no matter their age, language, color or place on this earth.
Athletes love to compete. This pursuit is absolutely necessary for them to excel in their sport. As a team member the practice, games, wins and losses bring about a deep bond of love between the players. Loving camaraderie happens as together they sacrifice themselves for the love of the game.
Although we naturally seek the love of people, it is God’s love that truly satisfies our soul. He willingly sacrificed His Son to die on the cross so we can be in relationship with Him.
For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son. John 3:16 KJV
When we accept this unconditional and pure love our longing for love is satisfied.
God is love...as we live in Him, our love grows more perfect. I John 4:16 & 17 NLT
Loving others becomes second nature to us as we pursue God’s love and allow it to envelop our soul. It then gracefully flows through us and into the world around us.
And we know and rely on the love God has for us. We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:16 &19 NIV
GOD PURSUES US WITH HIS UNWAVERING LOVE –
PAY IT FORWARD!
