The Hardest Lesson to Learn
I have found that it’s easy to start thinking that God loves us based on our performance. We tend to think, “God loves me if I am obeying Him, He doesn’t love me if I am failing Him.” Regardless of your performance, God loves you! He loves you because He chose to love you. Do you want to know the secret to pleasing God? It all has to do with believing and receiving His great love for you. It is all about love … God’s love for you and your response of love for Him. That is why Jude earnestly pleads, “Keep yourselves in the love of God” (Jude 1:21). Why not take some time today and meditate on His love for you? Let God ground you in His limitless love. You will be amazed at the peace and joy that will flow into your heart as you believe and receive His love. Now that’s REAL HOPE.
