As you read that, how did it make you feel? I know it really hit me when I read it the first time. God really loves me! He knows every single detail about me! Me, just little me in a huge world. One in 7 billion or so people in the world! He loves me, and He knows every single detail about me. Things that even the people who know me best don’t know. Even more amazing is God loves those who don’t even know about Him! Even the people who don’t believe He exists. God is love. God knew everything about us, everything we would do, even before we were born. Before anyone knew we were going to exist. God knew. And God had a plan for us. God isn’t mad at us when we sin. But He will forgive us, and He sent His Son to die so that we can be forgiven. God loves us that much. More than we can even comprehend. We can try to understand love that great, but we will never completely understand until we are in heaven with our Father God. We say we love our parents, our siblings, our friends, but we don’t love them even a fraction as much as God loves us. God is our comforter. He comforts us in our times of weakness. When we are going through hard times, when we are grieving the loss of a loved one, when nothing in life seems to be going right, He is there to comfort us. Even when we blame Him for our trials, He will still be there. If we are Christians, then when we get to heaven He will wipe away our tears. There will be no more pain. I don’t know about you, but that sounds good to me! No more pain, no more sickness, no more crying, no more death. That sounds absolutely amazing! Jesus death was God showing how much He loved us. So much so that He sent Jesus to die, so that we could be reconciled to God. Nothing will separate us from God’s love if we believe in Him. Nothing! God will always love us, no matter what. All He wants from us is for us to love Him back. He wants us to love and serve Him. He wants us to tell others about His great love for them. His only question? Will you be mine. Have you accepted Jesus as your savior, or do you need to do that? Why wait? God is there waiting for you to come to Him. If you are a Christian, but have strayed from God, why wait to return? Now is the time. He is waiting for you. It doesn’t matter how much sin you have committed, He is still there waiting for you to come back to Him. God loves you, and He will always be there for you to lean on!
