Believe it or Not ... You Are Loved
I often talk to people who have a hard time believing that God loves them. They don’t think they are worthy of His love. Does that describe you? In John 15, Jesus says to stay connected and abide in His love. Without question, the most important thing in your life and mine is to believe this truth: God really does love us with an everlasting love. We cannot begin to do this until we understand and receive His great love for us: “We love, because He first loved us” (1 John 4:19). It is a rock-solid truth that God is good and that He loves you. The bloody cross of Jesus Christ screams out these life-changing words, “I love you!” Your number-one job as His child is to keep yourself in His love … and love Him back with all that you are. If you do this each day, His Spirit will lead you, and your life will be a great success in His eyes. Now that’s REAL HOPE.
