God Loves You! More than just a nice thing to say.

God loves you! Did you know that this is more than just a nice thing to say to someone?

This statement has an abundance of meaning and power!

God’s love is what is called “Agape” love. This love is an unconditional and self-sacrificing love. This is the love that sent Jesus to die on the cross for the sins of the whole world!

God loves you! He loves me and he loves the whole world!

This love is different from what you see in the world today.  We see a very conditional love, based on what we do or don’t do, instead of who we are.

Have you had friends just stop talking to you, without a reason? Have you had friends, unfriend you on Facebook without telling you why? Do you have friends or family who will hang around you only if you do certain things with them? This is not love!

God wants you to know that he loves you because He created you! He desires you and everyone in this world to know Him and to have a relationship with Him.

“This is how God showed His love among us: He sent His one and only Son into the world that we might live through Him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” 1 John 4:10 (NASB)

We are LOVED by God! Let that truth sink deep into your heart today.

Heavenly Father, I am so thankful for Your love. What an amazing love that You would sacrifice Your one and only son so we would know Your love, your forgiveness, and we would be able to have a relationship with You. Help me to truly believe that You love me and to keep that truth in my heart always. In Jesus Name. Amen.
