I guess by now you have noticed I am on a God post kick. Maybe because of the Easter season, or maybe because I am just so thankful for His love.
He has done so much for me and it just overwhelms me, that in a world of rampant evil, He still takes the time to love and care for me. It overwhelms me that He loves me (and You!) enough to give His only son to die to save us.
I have done some pretty stupid things in my life. There are times that I have been pretty unlovable. No matter how I try, sometimes I still fail. But He still loves me. Enough to give His son. Then His son loved me enough to stretch out His arms and die on the cross to save me.
He loves you that much too.
In His light,
You Are the Object of God’s Love
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 TLB).
God loves you so much that he sent Jesus on a mission of love with a message of love. The Bible doesn’t say God has love; it says God is love. Love is his nature; God is love.
God created the entire universe. He created this planet; he created the human race. And he created you because he loves you.
It could be said the reason you’re alive is because God created you as an object of his love. God made you so he could love you and so that you could love him. God’s love for you is the reason your heart’s beating right now; it’s the reason you’re breathing.
God’s amazing news is that he loves you on your good days as much as he loves you on your bad days. He loves you when you can feel his love, and he loves you when you can’t seem to feel his love. He loves you whether or not you think you deserve his love.
Nothing you can do will make God stop loving you. You could try, but you simply couldn’t do it because his love for you is based upon his character and not on anything you do or say or feel.
God loves you so much that he sent his only Son, Jesus, into this world, “so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 TLB).
When Jesus stretched his arms out as wide as the cross, he was saying, “I love you this much! I love you so much it hurts. I love you so much I’ll die for you so that I won’t have to live without you.”
God’s love surpasses all human knowledge—and as Ephesians 3:17-19 tells us, it is impossible for any of us to fully grasp the width and length and height and depth of God’s love for each one of us. That’s how much God loves you!
