Deep down in each of us, we all have a need to be loved by someone. Often when human love fails us, we accept the idea that God’s love is no different than this human love and that He will fail us too. Here's the problem, humans cannot possibly reflect a perfect idea of what true love is. In order to recognize and understand God's unfailing love, you and I will have to set aside our experiences and personal views.
This video is a bit long, but so worth watching! It is just a small example of the love Jesus and His Father have for each one of us!!
He died...let this story sink in for a moment. You and I heard the story of "Jesus dying on the cross" to the point where we have often lost sight of what it really means. Until we realize God's love, we will never be able to handle earthly relationships God's way.
God loves you…
The biblical account of His death on the cross wasn't a fairytale experience, it was a selfless act of love and sacrifice for YOU.. Jesus Christ labored for you at the cross and literally gave His life so that you might live. His Spirit of love has been planted in your heart and now you have the privilege of learning what it means to love Him back! He promises that we will find Him when we search with all our hearts. Are you pursuing God will all your heart or do your earthly relationships take first place?
Can you have discernment in your friendships and relationships if you aren't daily experiencing a deep relationship with God first? It isn't possible!
I would encourage you to read through the gospel accounts of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Also, read Isaiah 53.
His is the ultimate story of love!
