January 2019 Chaplain’s Chat for Cornerstone
Being loved, whether we want to be or not.
Do you know God loves you and will always love you and He gives all His love? Even if we never asked for it or nor desired it.
God says so in His own words.
a. God loves the whole world (including you).
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
b. God loved us when we were still living a life that was not only without Him but also against Him (God loves you because He is the source of all love and gives it freely without being asked).
Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
1 John 4:8 “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.”
c. God’s love for us is a universal and eternal constant and never changes because He never changes: (so no matter how much life changes or you change God’s love for you will always be strong, full, complete and will never disappear)
James 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from above, from the Father of lights, with who is no variation nor shadow of turning. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with who is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
Romans 8:38-39 “38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our LORD.”
So remember in a cold and many times unforgiving world God loves you. He always has, does now and always will. Why not love Him back by asking Him into your heart?
