John 3:16 For God so loved….
Why does God love us?
Not “How do we love God or how does He love us” but Why???
This is important to know because you want to keep doing what you did to make your spouse, child, friend, and Jesus love you.
It is not because you and I are loveable or deserving
#1 We are His.
So God created mankind in His own image,
in the image of God He created them;
male and female He created them.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.
#2 He is committed to us.
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you.”
#3 His nature is love. God loves us because He is love
1 John 4:8
Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
So now what:
Every day pray:
“Thank you for loving me because You made me, You are committed to me and You are love”
