The Challenge — Day 165

Today’s Scripture: John 18:1-24
[Five more days after today, and we’ll be done with The Challenge. Open up His Word, get your Bible in hand or click the reference above to read online.]

Then Jesus, knowing all that would happen to him, came forward…
John 18:4
Jesus knew what was coming. He knew He would suffer. He knew it would be hard. But He did it all out of love for those He created.
God, too, knew all that would happen — the Fall, the Flood, the Crucifixion — even before He created, yet He chose to move forward and create. He knew what was coming. He knew He would suffer. He knew it would be hard. But He created out of love.

Those who have the power to hurt you the most are those you love the most.
Those on whom you can inflict the greatest pain are those you love more than anyone else in the world.

Love causes us to endure hard things because it is worth it in the end to love.
Consider God’s great love for you today, all He willingly endured to create.
Thank Him.
Praise Him.
He is love.
So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us.
God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
1 John 4:16 ESV
Father God, open my heart to Your love.
