Crowned devotional 1 – Love, the greatest of all things
Hey, zistas!! Welcome to the very first “Crowned” blog! This devotional was created especially for our sisters (and our parents – woo!) to remind us all that even in the hardships of life and college that we are the CROWNED daughters of the one true King!! How amazing is that!?
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has crowned us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms in Christ” Ephesians 1:3
In the spirit of valentine’s day, let’s focus our attention to the “greatest of all things”. I love how our creed even states that love is and should always remain our main focus in life!! 1 Peter 4:8 reminds us that “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” In this social-media-world filled with hatred and bitterness, we should always remember that the Lord first loved us and enabled us to love not only Him, but those around us (1 John 4:19). A challenge for us zistas would be to show our love and compassion for each other daily, as well as the others around us. It would be so amazing share the love of Jesus with everyone on our campus!!
In closing, we should always remember that the love we receive daily from the Lord is a love like no other. No matter where you are in this life, whether you are single or not, have 20+ best friends or just 3 close ones, or if you are struggling to find your place here at Samford, know that you are loved by the King of Kings, Lord of Lords. And because of that, we should praise Him! “Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you. I will praise you as long as I live, and in your name I will lift up my hands. I will be fully satisfied as with the richest of foods; with singing lips my mouth will praise you.” Psalm 63:3-5
