Celebrate God’s Love (5): His Love Covers You

Matthew 1:18-19 NLT | ” … But while Mary was still a virgin, she became pregnant by the Holy Spirit. Joseph, her fiance, being a just man, decided to break the engagement quietly, so as not to disgrace her publicly.”

Very few people will do what Joseph chose to do here. Many folks, myself included, will be in a hurry to “throw stones of anger and accusations” at Mary. But Joseph avoided that route. Because his heart was filled with the God kind of love.

Apostle Peter clearly tells us that love covers a multitude of sins. Moreso God’s love. God knows that you are not perfect. You are His work in progress. His love covers you while correcting you. His love protects you while He shapes you into the person He has predestined you to be.

God’s love shields you. His love speaks on your behalf when you make mistakes. His love advocates for you. In your journey with the Lord, His love covers you as you metamorphose from one level of glory to another. Celebrate God’s precious love for you today!
