Believing Love

“For God so d the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish but may have eternal life.”
—John 3:16 (NRSV)

God s you! Did you know that? Okay – if you are reading this…chances are that you did know that. But do you believe it? There is a possibility that at some point, or another, you have questioned if a certain person in your life s you. A parent, your spouse, a grandparent, your kid, etc. Personally – I have questioned this a handful of times in all four of those areas mentioned. It’s not a good feeling to question if someone s you. Maybe we logically know they us, but we don’t feel it or see it very often – which leads to the questioning. We can also have a hard time loving ourselves even.

This can lead to questioning God’s for us at times. But. I want you to really know, and believe that God has a deep for you. It’s the reason that He sent Jesus – His one and only Son – to come to the earth as a helpless baby only to grow up and save us all. So if you believe in Jesus you should also believe the that comes from God. If you believe you have eternal life because of the faith you have in Jesus, then you should believe in the that comes from God.

God s you! God’s is the never failing kind of . When earthly can fail us – God’s never fails. When you fall short as a grandparent, parent, sibling, parent, child – God’s never fails. When you feel unlovable – God’s never fails and He demonstrates that through Jesus. Remember that this Christmas season. You are d. And because you are d you can others.

Maybe you are like me and have given yourself a hard time or two about how you have showed your to your kids, spouse, parents, grandparents, friends, or people you don’t even know very well. Give yourself a break and then remind yourself that you can others because you are first d by God. Then go out and try to show that again and again and again. Love others the way that Jesus s you.
