People often question if God really loves them. Does God really care? We all know that love is something that has to be shown and felt. God knew we would have these questions, so He shows it!
First of all, God is love. 1 John 4:7 teaches us that all love comes from God. His very nature is selfless, caring, and giving. Secondly, John 3:16 teaches us that God loved us so much that He gave up His only son just so that we shouldn’t have to die but have fellowship with Him. He did this even when we are unlovable and offend Him (Romans 5:8). Most of all, He is so patient with us. We can constantly reject His love and leadership, but much like the prodigal’s father, He waits for our turning (or returning) to Him. (Luke 15:20-24)
You don’t have to wonder about God’s love, because He has made it very clear. He loves you and He wants you just the way you are. He knows your every flaw, yet He desperately pursues you; wanting you to come close to Him. He has made every effort to draw you near.
So the question is, how will He know that you love Him? Will you lean toward His advances or will you ignore Him? Will you yield to His will for you or will you reject Him? Will you draw close to Him or will you continue to run?
Yes! God loves you! He is jealous for you and wants your attention and affection. He has so much He wants to give you. How will you know that He really loves you? When you let Him.
