It's not about making a point…let's make a difference

When You Love Somebody

It was the fall of 1984, our oldest son had just been born. One of the hit songs of the year was ‘You’re the Inspiration’ from Chicago’s 17th album. That tune would define my wife’s love for her new born and ultimately become their song. Just the other day, she searched through Youtube to find just the right version to send him to express how much she loves him. He lives in another state now and just had his first child.

As I read through the lyrics, the first verse really captured my imagination:

You know our love was meant to be
The kind of love to last forever
And I want you here with me
From tonight until the end of time
You should know Everywhere I go
Always on my mind, In my heart, In my soul

As I read those words, I couldn’t help but draw a comparison to our heavenly Father’s love for us. He choose us before the beginning of time, His love will never fail. Ephesians 1:4-6 ‘For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.’

Think about that as you walk through your day. Allow the reality of what it means to be loved by the God of the universe as a son or daughter…and that love started before the beginning of time and will last forever because ‘His love for you was meant to be, the kind of love that lasts forever.’
