This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. – 1 John 4:10 (NLT)
Have you ever had a friend that said they really loved you, but later found out they were talking about you behind your back? How many times have you experienced someone who said they loved you and then later let you down?
We often let those people who let us down cause us to doubt God’s love. We wonder could He really love us all the time, no matter what?
Those doubts often creep into our relationship with God making us feel we’re not worthy of God’s love. We often secretly wonder that His love for us might change if we don’t do the right things.
The truth is God shows us what real love looks like. He doesn’t love you based on your performance or stops loving you when someone better comes around. God’s love is always and forever.
Today’s Truth: I Am Loved
God loves you in a big way. He gave everything He had to know you and to talk to you. That is real love.
The truth is that people will let you down. They might say they love you and then do something that seems to contradict that. But God is not like that at all.
God loves you. He loves everything about you, and His love for you will never change. So if you’ve struggled, feeling unworthy or unloved, focus on today’s truth. Regardless of how your friends or family has treated you, God loves you. The good news is that He will never stop loving you.
