Love is a theme we can find almost anywhere we look...books, movies, statues...Many songs have been written about love too. "All you need is love" is stuck in my head right now. Love is a prevalent topic, but how well do we love? Ephesians 2 expresses how much of a mess we are because of our sin. "But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ..." We were a mess but God's love. Because of God's great love and mercy, we are changed. We are given a second chance. When we look at the world around us, do we give that kind of love and mercy to others, or do we expect people to be a little cleaned up first? Love on some messy people this week, and remember we started our journey with Christ because of God's amazing love, not because of anything we accomplished.
