Day 18: Undeniable Love


You don't have to get GOD to like you

It doesn't matter how good you are.

It doesn't matter how bad you are

You don't have to get GOD to like you.

Try to convince GOD to unlike you.

You will lose.

"BUT GOD demonstrates HIS own love for us in this: While we were still sinners,

CHRIST died for us" (Romans 5:8).

BUT you may wonder if HE is talking to you,

and you may even remind HIM why HE shouldn't like you

because you have a big

BUT GOD I DID ____________

or a

BUT GOD _________ doesn't like me

or a

BUT GOD I don't feel very likable.

BUT GOD will leave you there

yet still be waiting for you to

ALLOW HIM

to not only like you

BUT to LOVE YOU.

BUT is GOD'S LOVE ENOUGH

when you don't feel not

ENOUGH

or have ENOUGH of what you crave?

Hmm.

You either BELIEVE GOD or you don't.

As GOD reminded me this morning that

HIS WORD is HIS LOVING HEART

that speaks to every HEART

and fills every HEART

that RECEIVES HIS LOVE

that is found in

HIS SON~

"So, what do you think? With GOD on our side like this, how can we lose?

If GOD didn’t hesitate to put everything on the line for us,

embracing our condition and exposing HIMSELF to the worst by sending HIS own SON,

is there anything else HE wouldn’t gladly and freely do for us?

And who would dare tangle with GOD by messing with one of GOD'S chosen?

Who would dare even to point a finger?

The ONE who died for us—who was raised to life for us!—is in the presence of GOD at this very moment sticking up for us.

Do you think anyone is going to be able to drive a wedge between us and CHRIST'S love for us? There is no way! Not trouble, not hard times, not hatred, not hunger, not homelessness, not bullying threats, not backstabbing...

None of this fazes us because JESUS loves us. I’m absolutely convinced that nothing

—nothing living or dead, angelic or demonic, today or tomorrow, high or low, thinkable or unthinkable—absolutely nothing can get between us and GOD'S love because of the way that JESUS our Master has embraced us" (Romans 8:35-40 MSG).

So does

GOD LIKE YOU?

Oh no,

because

"GOD REALLY LOVES US"

(listen to the song below)
