Does God Love Me?
The short answer is YES! God definitely loves you. You may find it hard to believe. You may even feel you don’t deserve it. However, neither make it any less true.
Does God really love me … even with all the things I have done? The Bible is proof of God’s love and it repeats His love for us from one end to the other. Story after story shows God’s love for His people is consistent even though we don’t deserve it. The Bible says, “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself” (Jeremiah 31:3). God can’t lie and His Word reassures us of His unbroken love.
How much does God love me? The biggest and best answer to your question is found in His Son, Jesus Christ. God sent His only Son to earth to sacrifice His life for you.
Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to the smell of smoke and flickering light of fire. You immediately cry out for help and someone answers you. They burst through your door and usher you to safety but you later find out your hero lost his life while saving others. Wouldn’t you be thankful for your life and grateful for your hero’s sacrifice? The Bible says, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
This is what Jesus did for you. Because of your sins, you were on a path of death and eternity in hell—but Jesus saved you and took upon Himself the death you deserved. Why did Jesus do this for you? Because He loves you dearly and wants you to be with Him in heaven forever. The Bible says, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?” (Romans 8:35).
Take a moment and thank God for His love, forgiveness and Son. Are you ready to receive His love and commit your life to Jesus?
Step 1 – God loves you and has a plan for you!
Step 2 – People are sinful and separated from God.
Step 3 – God sent His Son to die for your sins!
Step 4 – Would you like to receive God’s forgiveness?
"Dear God, I know I’m a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe Jesus Christ is Your Son. I believe that He died for my sin and that you raised Him to life. I want to trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord, from this day forward. Guide my life and help me to do your will. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen."
