Does God Really Love You? [The Answer is… YES!]
God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die. – John 3:16 (CEV)
You might think that certain people don’t deserve my love. It might be because they wear a burka, speak a foreign language, worship another god, or have committed a crime. Some might think that my love is reserved for the “right” people. For those who have tried to live a good life, who have Christian parents, or who have it all together.
The truth is my love is free…, for everyone.
I love the you. I love your neighbor. I love the homeless women. I love the prisoner. I love the prostitute. I love the business man. I love the rebellious child.
There are no exceptions. You can’t earn it and you can’t lose it. It’s not reserved for a certain group of “good people.” It’s not exclusively for those who “need it.” It’s for everyone.
You have a choice; will you accept my love or reject it.
As their final act, the two criminals that were crucified on either side of Jesus made this choice. One chose to reject him, the other to accept him. The one who accepted him was told, “Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 22:43) It wasn’t too late for him, and it’s not too late for you. Open up your heart to my love. Invite me in. Let’s begin a relationship today.
