God Loves US!

1 John 4:16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

As I think about the beautiful summer that has begun, I can’t help but think about how much our God loves us and how His love should be revealed in us. Why? You ask. Because He is what He is, and His love for us is limitless. By throwing ourselves into His arms with all our imperfections and knowing that He recognizes everything within us—and yet still loves us, should cause us to want to please Him!

Believe it or not, the God who desires our fellowship and communion is not hard to please, although He may be hard to satisfy. He only expects from us what He has Himself supplied for us. Even when He has to get on to us because of our foolishness, He even does that with a smile. That delighted, tender smile of a Father who is bursting with love over an imperfect child who every day is becoming more and more like His very child!

Folks, this is the best of the good news: God loves us for ourselves. He values our love more than He values galaxies He created.
