Devotional | Eric Busby

  • When Elliott was born we were given a copy of the Jesus Storybook Bible. Recurring reference is the never stopping, never giving up, always and forever love of God. 
  • Ephesians 2: 1 – 5
  • Gabriel comes to Daniel three times and tells him he’s greatly loved. Wouldn’t it be great to hear that ourselves? Exactly what happens in this Ephesians passage because of His great love. 
  • His great love is never stopping, never giving up, always and forever love. 
  • Great reminder that we’ve been saved by grace because of the great love of God and His great mercy. 

Prayer | Tim Peabody
