You Love Him
1 Peter 1:8-9(NIV)
8 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
We all have heard about the phrase ‘love at first sight’. This is when you see somebody and fall head over heels and will do whatever it takes to win the heart of that person. If somebody went on a blind date, it would be hard to say that you are in love without seeing that person first. We are all impacted by first impressions.
Peter says something interesting about God’s nature and how God can affect our lives. There is something about the love of God that overshadows any physical relationship we have on this earth. We cannot see God, yet we somehow love him and we have a faith that drives us to do what pleases God and to live a life that is different than if God was not involved. Our love comes after realizing how much God loves us and this is what motivates and drives us toward Him.
