“FOR GOD SO LOVED. . .”
There is no one who could love us as God does! God loves us with an EVERLASTING LOVE, a love that started before you and I were born, before we were conceived by our parents! Do you know ANYONE who has loved you from before the world was created?! It is hard to fathom, but you can check out: Jer 1:5; 2 Tim 1:9; Eph 1:4 as starters.
We are so special to God who knew us by our name and had “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jer 29:11 NIV). God loves us so much that He calls us by many endearing names, like His people, His children, my sheep, my friends, my beloved, the apple of His eye, His chosen ones, and dozens more names.
(Later, when I figure out how to do links, I will refer you to my husband’s teaching on ‘Who Am I?’ and ‘Why Was I Created?’)
I leave you today with the words of a little song about GOD’S LOVE:
God’s love is like a circle, a circle big and round
And if you see a circle, no ending can be found.
And so the love of Jesus, goes on eternally,
Forever and forever, I KNOW THAT HE LOVES ME!
