“God is love.” (1 John 4:8)
This week God has been showing me and reminding me of His love, and not only His love for me, but His love for everyone, including YOU! The Bible says God is love. It 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. He created you because He loves you. God created you from His love. He made you so that He could love you and so that you could love Him. God’s love for you is the reason your heart is beating right now; it’s the reason you’re breathing.
God’s good 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. He even loves you even when you make mistakes!
There is nothing you can do that will make God stop loving you! You could try, but you simply can’t do it, because His love for you is based on 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 everyone who believes in Him will not perish BUT have eternal life” (John 3:16). How amazing is our God! Jesus stretched His arms out as wide as the cross, 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 it is difficult for any of us to fully grasp the width and length and height and depth of His love for each one of us (Ephesians 3:17-19). I hope that this encourages you today to seek God more and even feel His love for you in a new and deeper way. Remember: GOD LOVES YOU!
