Going Deeper into Respect: Week 5/Day 5

God’s Unique Love

Return to the Reflection Thoughts. Consider how His love for you is unique, personal, intimate. Praise Him as the One whose love comes with a guarantee to jealously protect you as His treasured possession.

Day 5: The very flame of the Lord…

Read Genesis 3:22-24

What was the purpose of the flaming sword set at the entrance to the garden of Eden?

Do you consider the barrier an act of love? Why or why not?

Have you set a boundary or barrier in the name of love? What was the result?

Read Acts 2:1-4

What appeared as flames on the first Pentecost after Jesus’s resurrection? What did they signify?

How is God’s unique love expressed in both the flaming sword and the tongues of fire? How do we respond with respect?

Review the week’s homework. How do you see the seal of God’s love as a sign of protection? ownership? and validity or guarantee of His promises?

Does it move you toward respecting His unique love? Why or why not?

How can we love others the same way?
