Surrounded By Love
Love is a word that pops up everywhere. Teenaged boys tell teenaged girls that they love them. Adoring fans proclaim their love for musicians, sports stars, and celebrities.
But not everything called "love" is really worth having. Teenaged boys usually move on to different teenaged girls quickly enough. And we all know how fleeting are the fortunes of fame.
Love that flows out of God, however, has staying power. The Bible tells us that God is love. And the love that He places upon His people isn't something He just decided to do one day. God chose us in Christ "before the foundation of the world" (Ephesians 1.4), and it is that love that transcends time that comes into history when the Son is born of a woman. "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life" (John 3.16).
We at Christ Covenant are not perfect - like everyone else in this life, we are in transition. But we have encountered the love of God, and we are learning to share in that abundance with others. Whatever the circumstances of your life, we would delight in the opportunity to surround you with some of that love.
