God is the perfect parent. He is unlike anyone we’ve ever known, and his love is unlike anything we’ve experienced before. Imagine knowing your parent loved you perfectly, and that their intentions and motives behind giving you direction was literally perfectly loving? That’s how God is with us. His wisdom and direction is something we can trust implicitly because he can trust his heart toward us, and that truth makes obedience a joy. As we explore love-based obedience today, may your heart be open to the goodness of your loving Father.

Our Scripture for today comes from John 14:21, and today's worship is Yes (Obedience) by MDSN.

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.
