Oh, how He loves you… and me

Oh, how He loves you

The Bible in summary: Old testament, love Me, love Me, love Me; New Testament, I love you.

He loves you as you are
Jesus loves you for free. You cannot earn something which is free. It would be like paying for sunlight, when you get it simply by stepping outside. The Lord said, “…I will love them freely…” (Hosea 14:4). If you had to earn His love, it wouldn’t be love.

Learn to love the Lord for who He is, not based on who you are. For you are broken and He is not. He loves you even when you cannot love yourself.

His love will change you
I heard this somewhere, “Jesus loves you just as you are, but He loves you too much to leave you that way”.

Stop thinking that if He loves you He would make your life easy.

The more you realize His love for you, the greater that God will fill you. My prayer for you is this, “that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God” (Ephesians 3:17-19).
