As I sit and write this I see the sun shining outside and I feel the cool breeze blowing through my office, I am reminded….. He Loves me! We must always remember God created us for one purpose and one purpose only…. To Love Us. That’s it! If God loved us enough to send his son to die for our sins, then we can rest in the humble knowledge that we are worth loving.
Just like when we got our new puppy. We got Chester to love him. We didn’t get him because we wanted him to love us and take care of us and do things for us. We got him solely because we wanted a puppy to love and play with. This is the same as God – creating us to love us! And Chester is not perfect – he messes up and pees on the carpet and digs in my yard and chews on my shoes – but I still love him because he is sooo adorable.
Here are some synonyms for lovable: adorable, dear, cute, sweet, charming, darling, lovely, likable, delightful, captivating, enchanting, engaging, bewitching, pleasing, appealing, winsome, fetching, and endearing. Hmm… run through that list for yourself. How many can you put a check mark by? Now, do it again for someone that annoys you. Again, put a check mark. How’s it going?
Here is why the Gospel is called the Good News. He loves you when: you are not adorable but deplorable; not sweet but sour; not captivating but disgusting; not engaging but enraging; not winsome but fearsome; and, not bewitching – but in fact a bit witchy. God loves you because He made you and you are His! He loves you just the way you are, warts and all. He was standing over you this morning waiting for you to awake up, because He loves you and wants to spend the day with you…. Do you want to spend the day with Him?
I’ll not clutter your thoughts with much more than that this fine day. You are worth loving. You are worth it.
The whole universe is bent towards you as it declares this Divine Truth…. the words of which are written in blood forever. ” I LOVE YOU! “GOD.
