1079th -- Because God Loves You


One thing we should always remember and keep in mind is that God loves 
us. No matter our triumphs or our failures God loves us. No matter if we 
are sinners or Saints God loves us. The Lord's love towards us isn't 
dependent upon our righteousness, but rather it is freely given to all 
mankind because His love comes to us without motive, without prejudice and 
without requirement. God's love is something that we could never earn or 
deserve. We could never work hard enough to merit God's love or be 
righteous enough to be worthy of having such a priceless gift. It is a 
gift freely given because when we were created, we were created by His 
love. He sees us as worthy, as deserving, as righteous, as beloved and as 
His perfect child. We may stumble, we may fall short and we may fail, but 
with God a second chance is always available. When we humble ourselves 
and ask for His forgiveness, He forgives us quicker than we could ever 
think or imagine. (Jeremiah 31:3) (Romans 5:8) (Isaiah 64:6-9)

No matter what you may be going through I want you to know that God loves 
you. No matter your past, no matter your sins, no matter your shortfalls, 
a new beginning is always possible. When the Lord Jesus Christ took upon 
Himself our sins and died in our stead; that was God showing His love 
towards humanity. His love is so great that He willingly took upon Himself
our sins so that we may live Eternally with Him. If we are ever to doubt 
God's love for us all we need to do is think of the cross of Christ. It 
was not nails that hung the Lord Jesus to the cross, but it was His love. 
No man could take the Lord's life; He willingly gave it up so that we 
might become the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. His love is that 
great for us. Never doubt or question how much the Lord loves and cares 
for you. (Isaiah 1:18-20) (Ezekiel 36:26-27) (Jeremiah 33:3)

Let this message remind you that you are greatly loved by the Lord. Never 
doubt it and never question it, but rather embrace His love. Commune with 
the Lord, share with Him all that is on your heart and let God know that 
you are thankful for all that He has done for you. When we recognize how 
fortunate we are our hearts will be filled with gratitude and we will give 
Praise to the Lord for every gift and blessing that He has graciously 
bestowed upon us. The Lord is worthy of the Praises of His people. Let 
us never forget that. (James 4:8) (Psalm 103:1-5) (Psalm 145:8-9)

I hope this message encourages and inspires your heart to see how holding 
God's love as the centerpiece of our life can do so much to encourage and 
lift up those around us.


There are stories that find their way into your heart and stay there 
forever. This is one that found its way into mine. There was once an 
elderly woman who lived in a violent, drug-ravaged, crumbling neighborhood 
in an old city. Her children had died before her. Time had left its mark 
on her too. She was no longer pretty in the eyes of the world. She had 
become wrinkled, stooped, thin and hollow-eyed. Her body was now half 
crippled with arthritis.

Still, this little old lady continually brought joy to the community 
around her. Everyone called her “Granny” and she was a loving Grandmother 
to all. As she moved slowly down the street she would sing hymns and share 
smiles. She had a kind word for everyone. She gave her gentle laughter as 
a free gift to all. She offered encouragement, said prayers for, and 
brought hope to the disheartened. She went about doing good every chance 
she could. No one who met her left without their heart feeling lighter and 
their smile shining brighter. Her serenity and tranquility remained a 
mystery to the neighborhood, though. No one could figure out how someone 
who had lost and suffered so much could live so beautifully.

One day a curious little girl ran up to the tiny old woman shuffling along 
with her walker and called out to her. “How do you do it Granny?”, she 
asked. “How do you love so freely? How do you live so happily? How do you 
give so much to all of us every day?” Granny just smiled at her and said, 
“Because God loves me child! Because He loves me, I love Him and you and 
everybody else!”

What a glorious truth she shared. There is no better reason to live and 
love than that. That is why this story will forever have a home in my 
heart. May you too make your life a beautiful gift of love, just because 
“God Loves You!”

Read and meditate on these scriptures:

Psalm 103:1-5 “Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless 
His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who 
redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness 
and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy 
youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

Proverbs 8:17-21 “I love them that love me; and those that seek me early 
shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and 
righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my 
revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the 
midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to 
inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.”

1 Chronicles 28:9-10 “And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy 
father, and serve Him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for 
the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of 
the thoughts: if thou seek Him, He will be found of thee; but if thou 
forsake Him, He will cast thee off for ever. Take heed now; for the LORD 
hath chosen thee to build an house for the sanctuary: be strong, and do it.”

2 Timothy 4:7-8 “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I 
have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of 
righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that 
day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing.”

All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
