DOES GOD REALLY LOVE ME AND YOU?
DOES GOD REALLY LOVE ME AND YOU? Sometimes life twists and turns in such a way that a person may ask, “Does God really love me?” After all you think you are a good person. But things just aren't going well. God seems so far away and unconcerned about you. Or maybe in the course of life events you just don't believe God could love you. Let me assure you that God loves you. Here is proof that God loves you in spite of how you feel or what your circumstances are or have been. "You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us," (Romans 5:6-8 NIV). God knew before we were even born all the good, bad, and ugly concerning us. And in spite of all He knew God loves us enough that He gave His Son to die for us that we could have an abundant life now and also spend eternity with Him. Jesus loves us enough that He willingly gave His life to pay for all our sin that we might have life eternal and an abundant life now through Him. When someone loves you that much thank God for His love and realize that the same God who gave His Son to die for you will also take care of life’s twists and turns so that things will always work out to fulfill the plan God has for you. God really does love us and it is still true, "Draw near to God and He will draw near to you..." (James 4:8).
