One question that always comes to my mind is how could the God of the universe have such deep love for us human beings?
He created man and woman in His image to have fellowship with Him but we always ended up disappointing Him.
Adam and Eve were deceived by the serpent and so are we being deceived by the enemy daily in our lives.
The enemy still has the same purpose, he does not want us to have fellowship with God and other believers. He wants to take us away from God’s presence by making us sin and be defiled.
Ephesians 2:1-3 says, 2 As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 2 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 3 All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh[a] and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath.
But thanks to God for His wonderful plan of redemption that He hatched in the garden of Eden and sent Jesus to the earth to save us. We would have all perished and gone to hell if not for Jesus Christ our Savior.
1 John 4:8 says “God is love.” He is going to love us and come after us no matter how sinful, unlovable and undeserving we are. God loves us not because of who we are or what we have done. He loves us because of who He is.
When we doubt His love for us we are taking our eyes off him and focusing on ourselves, our sins, and our challenges which is wrong. God’s love always has been and will be primarily about Him.
Colossians 2:13 says, “When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins.”
Our rebellion against God has made us spiritually dead, but Jesus is ready and willing to raise us back to life. He does that because, in spite of everything, God loves us.
Jesus loved us and died for us even when we were sinful and were breaking God’s laws. We were not deserving of His love for us, but Jesus loved us and died for us anyway. Romans 5:8 tells us, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
My prayer for everyone is that we get a firm grasp of the deep love of God for our lives. I pray you know that love personally and you be always filled with the fullness of God.
