Welcome friends!! Glad you stopped by for more encouragement on the ways God shows His love toward us! Let’s get started!
John 3:16. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
This verse tells us the heart of God. I have seen a plaque that has an inscription on it that reads, “I asked Jesus, How much do you love me? And Jesus said, This much – and He stretched out His hands and He died.” How much more does He have to show us? If there were no other mention of His love for us this would be sufficient. He need not add anything else, but He goes on with more:
John 15:13. “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
Just as in John 3:16, this verse in John 15 tells us that there is no greater way to measure the love for someone than to give His life for that person or people. When Jesus Christ gave up His last breath on the Cross of Calvary, He was saying in great huge, box car size letters, “I love you.”
Romans 5:8. “But God commendeth (showed) his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
He died for the ungodly.
He died for the homosexuals.
He died for the rapists and child molesters.
He died for the drunken fathers and mothers.
He died for the prostitutes and drug addicts.
He died for the business men, politicians, police officers, factory workers, farmers, military, housewives, den mothers, doctors nurses, teachers, students and YOU!
We are in a system that knows nothing of love.
I want to assure that God does love you. You may not be loved by anyone else, but you are loved by the One who has given all He has to show His love for you. A sparrow cannot fall to the ground without it getting God’s full attention. And there is nothing or no one who is too insignificant for God to love and care for.
God will never withdraw His love from you.
His love for you is not dependent upon your reciprocal love. He loves us whether we love Him or not. God does not just possess the ability to love, HE IS LOVE. Because He is love, He loves us. And because He loves us He has displayed that love through His Son Jesus Christ.
And there is no fear in God’s love! For perfect love cast out all fear. I have experienced these truths personally. I long for you to know them too. So today I’m giving away a copy of my book, An Untroubled Heart!
