Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Ephesians 1:7-8

Think for a moment. What’s your motivation for the things that you do? Do you run for your track team because you like running? Or do you run because you have lots of friends that go out for the sport and you want to have fun with them?

In life, there can be many different things that motivate us. Sometimes we’re motivated by peer pressure, money, fear, all different kinds of things. Let’s take a look at what motivated Jesus.

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, – Ephesians 1:7-8 (NIV)

Jesus was motivated by love. He loves us, so He gave it all for us. He wanted good things for us, so He gave everything He had so we could get redemption, forgiveness, grace and so much more.

It can be easy to forget with all that is going on in life, how amazing Jesus really is. He gave up everything so we could have it all. He really was motivated by love.


We’d like to give a big thanks to Lucas Beron for creating the image for today’s devotion. If you like his designs, you can see more of his work by following him at @yosigonmd. He’s also written several devotions for us in the past: How to Live Fear-Free During Coronavirus and Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Psalm 4:8.

Jesus did it just for love
