Sometimes, dealing with relationships with other people, one can get to feeling pretty unloved. At least I can get to feeling that way. Others, even those you once thought had true feelings for you, show through actions they care very little. They say they love you without limits, without condition and nothing will ever change that love. But, it is a sad fact of human existence, people either lie about their feelings or for some reason, maybe they don’t love themselves enough, they seem unable to actually show love. Perhaps I am silly to believe in the kind of love that one sacrifices for the other and continues to sacrifice, no matter if the other is unable to do everything we want exactly when we want. They are unwilling, or unable, to give that kind of sacrifice without question. I guess the notion of unconditional love for humans is a fallacy.
But, the unconditional, limitless love of God, that is NO FALLACY. It is true. No doubt in my mind about that. There are so many verses about His love for us that it was hard to find the best ones, but here are just a few.
John 3:16 – For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
1 John 3:1 – Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
Hebrews 13:8 – Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
God sacrificed His Son. Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself. And, he does not change.
Isaiah 41:13 – For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee.
He is also there to hold us, protect us and help us not just when we need Him, but always.
Jeremiah 31:3 – The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, [saying], Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.
The Lord gives us an everlasting love and kindness that humans are unable to even come close to having for each other. The never ending love that we have no ability to understand.
Ephesians 3:19 – And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
Lord, Praise You and Your Holy Name, I worship You for all You are, for the Love You give without condition, without limit and in spite of my failures. Thank You for the sacrifice of Your Son Jesus who died for my sins that I could be redeemed. I praise You for the forgiveness of my sins and my salvation. I ask in Jesus Name that You work in my heart and the heart of others that we be better examples for You and have the love for one another that You expect of us. I pray that any who feel I have wronged them forgive me as they have been forgiven. Teach me to have the heart and mind of Christ, that I be a better servant for You. Show us all Your way for us and Your plan for our lives. Please, draw loved ones nearer to You and make them sensitive to Your call to them that we may all be saved and live the life eternal with Christ.
Thank You all. I hope all remember He loves us, no matter how much or how little other people do. Have a blessed day, and pass on the blessing to others.
