We are deeply loved by the Lord. With this knowledge, and being secured in His deep love for us, we are able to unreservedly love others.
Indeed, I believe that only those who are fully known yet loved deeply can truly live freely and confidently and love others sincerely.
Here's a note from Allison, who wrote to me via the Contact Form provided on this website. To be loved by the Almighty God and to feel secured in His love enables Allison to want to share God's love.
Jeremiah 31:3 The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.
1 John 4:9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
Psalm 103:10-12 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
Romans 5:7-8 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
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 created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.
Ephesians 3:16-19 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height—to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.
1 John 3:1 Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
In spite of our weaknesses and short-comings, God still love us with an everlasting love and protect us no matter what because of Jesus' sacrificial work on the cross - Jesus died for us to save us from our sin and open out for us the way into God's bosom.
Praise the Lord!
May we always rest secure in God's love and go forth into the world; into homes and workplaces confident of this deep love. May we naturally and effortlessly bring His love to others in words and actions wherever our feet tread, giving glory to our Lord Jesus Christ; for it is Jesus Himself working in and through us in His love.
We love because He first loved us. - 1 John 4:19
