Daily Devotional – Love Breeds Life

Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Ephesians 2:1-10. We live and have freedom for one reason, God’s love for us. It is love, the greatest and most powerful weapon, that has purchased our forgiveness from the worst sin that you can imagine.

“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 

And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast. 10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”

Your Love God is greater than anything else.

Before Jesus gave up His spirit in love for us, He screamed, “It is Finished!” Living life before the sacrifice of Jesus was hard and void of intimacy with our creator. God was never able to draw close and breathe life upon us, as our sin stood between us.

No matter how hard you may have tried to live a holy and honoring life, it was never enough. The people walked the earth knowing that they were dead inside. With the death of Jesus, the veil was torn and the Holy Spirit was able to encounter His creation.

We have life bursting out from inside us as children of the Most High! God and His love brought forth life!

Let’s Pray

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you, Father God, that Your love allowed You to watch Jesus die on the cross. The same love has brought forth life in me and many others. Give me Your love for all those that I meet every day so that they can experience life.

In Jesus Name,

Amen
