“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him
should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world
to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is
condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
Everybody talks about love. But most of the love they’re discussing falls far short of the
real thing. God’s love is unconditional.
God loves with a love beyond human comprehension. He knows everything about you –
your needs, your desires, and your sins – and pursues a relationship with you. That’s
why He sent His only Son, Jesus, to die on a cross for our sins. Through good times and
bad, God will always be with you, loving you more than you could ever imagine.
God’s kind of love is unearthly and powerful stuff. And God did more than just talk
about love. He showed us. He loved we when we were unlovely. Remember:
no one and nothing offers the kind of love that God has for you. Love involves real
relationship with God – He wants to have a relationship with you. God loves you so much that he sent his Son to die for you. Do you know anyone else who would make such a sacrifice?
God’s love offers forgiveness, security, and comfort. Paul told the church in Rome,
“Nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Death can’t and life can’t. The angels
can’t and the demons can’t. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow and even
the powers of hell can’t keep God’s love away. Whether we are high above the sky or in
the deepest ocean, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of
God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Take time this morning to thank God for
His amazing love for you. Pray for God to give you more of His love to you today.
