God Loves to Love You

| 4 Comments

God Loves to Love YouDo you know how special you are in the eyes of God? Really. God loves you! And that’s not all! God loves to love you! He doesn’t know anything better than pouring our his love for you.

He loves you so much that he planned a way for you to get back in touch with him. God gave his only son for you with gladness. That much he loves you. He gave everything to be able to be in a relationship with you.

It is humbling and amazing all at once. The maker of the universe loves you! He gave his own son so you could return to him and be with him.

What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God! That’s who we really are. (1 John 3:1, MSG)

God’s love is not demanding but it is always giving and forgiving. We are always at the receiving end. We love God but he loves us always more. It is wonderful to bask in his love! Receive it! Embrace it! Share it!

My dear children, let’s not just talk about love; let’s practice real love. This is the only way we’ll know we’re living truly, living in God’s reality. It’s also the way to shut down debilitating self-criticism, even when there is something to it. For God is greater than our worried hearts and knows more about us than we do ourselves.
And friends, once that’s taken care of and we’re no longer accusing or condemning ourselves, we’re bold and free before God! We’re able to stretch our hands out and receive what we asked for because we’re doing what he said, doing what pleases him. Again, this is God’s command: to believe in his personally named Son, Jesus Christ. He told us to love each other, in line with the original command. As we keep his commands, we live deeply and surely in him, and he lives in us. And this is how we experience his deep and abiding presence in us: by the Spirit he gave us. (1 John 3:18-24, MSG)

God is good and his love for you is more than you can ever imagine. His love for you is never-ceasing, overflowing and given with gladness! Yes, God truly loves you. And even that’s not all. God loves to love you! Furthermore, he will always love you! Rejoice! Dance a happy dance! Praise the Lord! You are loved and cherished by God Almighty!

 

Gracious God,
I thank you and praise you
for your amazing, abundant love!
It touches my core being to be so cherished by you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you
from the bottom of my heart.
Show me how to love and serve you
and people around me!
In Jesus’ name,
Amen

    This is lovely. I remember being totally shocked when someone pointed out that God wants to be loved by us. It’s pretty incredible that the King of the all creation wants to have a relationship with us, and a relationship flows both ways!

    • So true. We are truly blessed. We just need to remember it and bask in His love and care. And, yes, love Him back with everything we have. Thanks, MB. God bless you!
