In our society we are used to seeing love portrayed in many different ways. In the world of fantasy, love is often shown as something that conquers all odds, and makes everything better. But in reality, if you want to tell someone you love them, words alone will not be enough.
There are many different ways to share your love with someone. If you want to show your loved one how much you care about them, there are many different things you can do for them. In fact, it is easy to show someone you care about them if you really put some effort into it.
But in reality, to impress someone and make a lasting impression on them, then it can be helpful to give them a gift that shows how much you care about them.
Although it may seem like a simple idea, giving a gift of your own can go a long way towards showing your loved one how much they mean to you.
“The whole Bible is a love story, it’s God’s love affair with the human race. You see, God has those billions of planets out there, all those hundreds and billions of stars, and it’s all Gods; but of all the planet in the whole world stands in all at the love God showers on this little planet called the Earth. And I imagine the people under the planet wonder why God hasn’t swept this planet of rebellion to oblivion. We are the only planet that are in rebellion against God and in spite of our rebellion, in spite of our disobedience, in spite of our sins, God Loves Us.” —– Billy Graham
Jesus Christ chooses us not because we were weak. He loves us because of our weaknesses. “While we were yet sinners Christ died for us.” ( Romans 5: 8)
Perhaps you are looking for an answer as to why He loves you;
Here are 6 reasons why He loves you:
1. God loves you so much because of who he is.
People can make you feel loved in two ways. They can do things for you, to make you happy. Or they can love the thing about you that makes you lovable. Most of us think the first kind is better, because it’s more tangible and easier to believe in. But the second kind is more important because it’s what enables you to respond to love in the first place.
The first kind of love makes you happy. The second kind makes you free. It doesn’t tie your happiness to anything external, so it can’t be taken away from you.
Lots of people find this hard to understand, but I think it’s easy if you keep one principle in mind: God loves you because of who He is, not because of anything you did or will ever do. If your self-esteem comes only from what other people think of you, then their appreciation is indispensable for your happiness. But if your self-esteem comes from what God thinks of you, then it’s impervious to anything other people do or don’t do.
If we could see ourselves as God sees us–perfect and radiant with His love–we wouldn’t care what anyone else thought. (1 John 4: 7-19)
2. God loves you because of who you are.
God loves you because you are made in his image and likeness. ( Genesis 1:26) He knows you are a dependent creature who is in need of Him. ( Psalm 103:13)
If you love someone, you don’t know if they’re going to love you back. So until you know whether they do, the best strategy is not to be presumptuous. That’s what Jesus was trying to say in the parable of the sheep and the goats (Matthew 25:31-46): Be nice because it’s the right thing to do, not because you can get something out of it (or avoid getting something bad). But we want a formula for how to be nice that we can follow and then check off as complete. If there’s no obvious benefit to being nice, we want at least a guarantee that it won’t hurt us. Jesus would have hated that way of thinking. He didn’t come here to give people formulas for how to succeed. He came here to say that God loves you unconditionally, because of who you are and not what you do.
3. God loves you because He wants you with Him forever.
‘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.'( John 3:16)
God wants to have a personal relationship with you. The ultimate good news of the Bible is that Jesus Christ came to rescue us from ourselves. Because we are broken, He died on a cross to redeem us, and then He rose from the dead so that we could be reborn and live in His new kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. This is the greatest love story ever told. God wants you with Him forever, and you can have a relationship with Him through faith in Jesus Christ. It’s not about religion; it’s about life, abundant and eternal.
4. God loves you because He wants to bless you!
“Blessed is the one who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in his commands.” (Psalm 112:1)
God wants you to have an awesome life, but He will not do it for you. You must partner with Him. It is God’s will for you to be blessed. Jesus said in (John 10:10), “The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
You are a joint heir with Christ (Romans 8:17), so anything He has belongs to you! His Word is true; every promise of blessing belongs to you. You must simply apply them to your life by faith.
We see this principle throughout the Bible. In fact, it is the very first promise of blessing in Scripture. (Genesis 12:2) says, “I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.”
God’s first blessing was the promise of greatness. God has that same desire for you today!
5. God loves you because He wants to give you a purpose!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).
You are loved because God wants to give you a purpose! He has a plan for you so you can accomplish great things—even if you are raised in a horrible environment, God wants to give you a better life.
God loves to see us happy and successful. He wants us to be at peace. The Lord is for us and not against us. All of this is because He has a purpose for our lives that we can discover and fulfill.
The Lord wants to see you succeed in life! There’s no better feeling than knowing you have found your purpose in life, and it’s what makes life meaningful and worthwhile. The Bible tells us that God has plans for each of our lives, plans to bless us with hope, dreams and great future possibilities.
6. God loves you because He wants to forgive your sins and failures!
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).
Maybe you are thinking, “How can God love me? I know what I have done, who I am and what I deserve.” Maybe you feel hopeless and think to yourself, “I’m not the person I used to be. How can God love someone like me?”
‘But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.'( Romans 5:8)
Lot of people don’t believe the Gospel, they believe the anti-gospel, and this is it. If you want to be chosen you have to be perfect, if you want to be loved, you have to be lovable, in order for people to come to you, you have to be whole, you have to be strong, you have to be healthy, you have to be great. That’s all! But the message of Christianity, the real gospel is that, in order to be redeem by Jesus you have to be broken, in order to be loved by God in some way, you have to be unlovable, in order to be redeemed by him, you have to be a sinner, in order to be righteous, you have to be someone who is not righteous.
The true gospel is to know that when I am in need, the Lord comes to my aid. When I am stocked, he comes to my rescue and when I am dying, he dies in my place. You are not chosen because you are special, but you are special because you are chosen.
I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. (Romans 8:38)
We think you’ll find that this encouraging word is the perfect gift for anyone who needs a bit more encouragement in their life!
