So simple yet so difficult to believe and accept, Jesus loves you, because our hearts are tainted by the curse of the fallen world.
Jesus wanted us to know and experience the meaning of His love and His presence in our life. He expresses this deep desire in His personal prayer to God His Father.
John 17:25-26 “Righteous Father, the world has never known you. Yet I have known you, and these men have known that you sent me. I made your name known to them, and will continue to make it known, so that the love you have for me may be in them and I myself may be in them.”
What will it take to convince you? What does it take to realize God’s deep and unchanging love for us to the point that it fills us and spills over to those who cross our path and beyond? Begin by looking to the cross where Jesus gave His life for us, even though we are sinners, He died for us and gave His life a ransom for many. (John 3:16; Matthew 20:28)
Walls are built in your mind which hide the truth of His love from you. Failure, guilt and shame build these walls. His love for you is deeper, higher and stronger than any wall your mind can build.
Romans 8:38-39 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers nor things present, nor things to come,
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
