Discipline can be a tricky subject. Many of us have not seen discipline done well, and no one really loves being disciplined or having something they’ve done wrong pointed out. But something we must keep in mind with our heavenly Father is that he loves perfectly, so discipline must be a part of his perfect love. As we wrap up our week of looking at who God is, this is a crucial topic we have to look at to engage with all the ways God loves us. As we dig deeper today, may our hearts be open to God’s loving perspective on correction for our good.

Our Scripture for today comes from Hebrews 12:6, and today's worship is New Wine by Hillsong Worship.

Reimagine what love looks like

Jesus summed up our purpose with two statements: love God and love people. Love is at the center of our Christian faith, but in this season of COVID-19, it can be more difficult than ever to experience it, much less live it out.

This is why we are launching volume 5 of our First15 Devotional Series, Love.

Within this 4-week journey, you will:

  • Learn how to stand firm on God’s love in every circumstance.
  • Receive lasting comfort in the goodness of God’s immense love for you.
  • Find ways to love others out of the overflow of God’s love for you, even from a distance.
  • Watch your faith come alive as you love God in word and deed.

If you are longing to experience God’s love in a deeper way, please request your copy of Love today.
