Morning Faithful Followers! Today we are excited for another devotion based off another great song. So let’s dive in shall we.
God highlighted a few songs for me over the weekend and one was this amazing Urban Rescue song. So I just couldn’t skip this song. This is “Never Stop” by Urban Rescue.
Never Stop- Urban Rescue
‘Here in the valley of my soul, When I am lost and all alone, Through all the shadows I can see, Your love is chasing after me…’ This song sings about God’s unfailing love for us. His love will never stop chasing after us, as Jesus proved by going to that cross. So today’s devotion will be a shorter and more specific devotion.
God’s love will never stop chasing after us. Let’s face it, His love is relentless and will never ever stop. Christians often think that because they now know God His love will stop chasing them and start chasing some other person who is lost, but that is not true. God made the laws of this universe so He alone is outside of them, meaning He can be chasing after you and every other person on this planet. ‘…No mountain higher, No river wider, My heart may wander, Your love will never stop chasing after me…’ No matter what may happen and no matter what we do His love will chase after me and you.
God’s joy and love pours out in this song and I just get so excited when I hear it. God has given us the gifts of joy and love. Philippians 4:4 “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again- rejoice!” So when God fills us with His love, let the joy of the Lord be evident in the way you live. Today and everyday we need to ask Jesus to come and fill us with His love so that we can show the lost how much Jesus loves. If we let the love of God fill us it will bring out the best of us. So lets look like love to our friends and our families, even when it’s hard. A quote from for King & Country says, “Love strong. Because you were first loved. Because without love we all perish…” and we as Christians need to love strong because we know that we were first loved.
As we are filled with the love of Jesus we should not be able to contain it. We should just want to tell all our friends and colleagues about the love of Jesus, because what is life without His love? Jesus came to give life and life to the full. Live it, share it. This is our church slogan which is based off John 10:10. We should never feel ashamed when it comes to what we believe because we know the love and hope Jesus brings. My friend has been praying for some friends and he got them to youth. He never backed down when his friend said no because of the love Jesus poured into him. We need to see through Jesus’ eyes and love like He loves all of us.

I hope this encourages you all to love like Jesus because He loved us first. Let Him fill your life with joy and peace and let that flow into everyone around you.
