Happy Tuesday my loves…
Why would you love a person? We may have different reasons but mostly we love because we find goodness in others. But who would love us at our darkest?
This is my verse for today. Isn’t it amazing that God loved us even while we were still sinners? He loved us at our darkest times. He pulled us up from the depth of our sins.
It is easy to love someone who loves us back. But being buried in sin means that we don’t love God. This only means that even when we still haven’t loved Him yet, He already has his eyes of love on us.
Although we are Christians, we are not perfect. I bet no one can stand up and profess to be perfect except Him who has clothed Himself in full humanity but yet without sin. Once in a while, deliberately or not, we still grieve God. We still commit sin. Sad but true. We may not even notice it at times but we do things that are not pleasing to Him. What I am trying to say here is that even if you feel the guilt of sin, don’t you ever think that God doesn’t love you. He loves you and He cares for you. In spite of all our failures and darkness, He sees us with eyes of grace and love.
This verse is my source of comfort. One song from the Black Eyed Peas asks “Where Is The Love?”. Sometimes we feel that there is no more love left in this world. Sometimes we feel that it is us against the world. There are also times when situations seem to be unfair. When these things happen, when the enemy attacks us with this kind of self pity emotion, always turn back to Romans 5:8. Even while we were sinners, Christ died for us. That is how much He loves you and me. He doesn’t care about our past or our future sins. The blood He shed has cleansed us from all sin – yes, even the future ones we are about to commit. Although we must remember that this doesn’t give us any license to sin.
I hope you feel God’s love always. He has a special way of making us feel His love. We just need to be more discerning.
May your day be filled with an awesome love!
