Our salvation has nothing to do with us – Christ died for everyone on the planet – not because we are good enough or worth dying for in any way – but because HE loved us! We did not love Him – which is obvious as we explore God’s Word. God knows we are unworthy sinners and He knows there’s nothing we can do to earn forgiveness from Him. It’s about HIS LOVE for fallen man – and it’s about HIS unending mercy and grace toward us.
The word love is thrown around in unbelievable ways these days. I would go so far as to say if you don’t know God’s love and the extent of it in your personal life, you really don’t know what true love is. It’s more than feelings or emotions – which are nice, but they don’t last for the long haul. God’s love will sustain and satisfy. His love will never disappoint you.
God’s pure eternal love is like a warm hug – wrapped in hope, peace, joy, and truth. If I was to define love, I’d say God’s love is the genuine article. God always has your back because He cares deeply for you and wants the very best for you always. He gives love with no hidden agenda and He just wants us to love Him in return. Can you love Christ, whom you have not seen? Do you know when the wind is blowing? You can’t see it.
I will trust when I cannot see
When I’m faced with adversity
And believe His will is always best for me
I will trust when I cannot see.
Know that no matter what’s going on in your life, God loves you and He’s working in your circumstance to help your situation. God loves you with the kind of love that can be trusted and you can rely on Him to keep His Word. He loved us first – will you love Him in return? Have a wonderful Sunday. 🙂
