God loves you.
Just like anything else, when you hear something over and over again, it can tend to not have the same effect on you that it once had.
But the other day, as we were talking about the holiness of God in our prayer meeting, a few thoughts about God's love dawned on me that has given me a much deeper appreciation for the love that God has for me!
God’s LOVE for you isn’t just a by-product of His GRACE, it’s an extension of His HOLINESS. In other words,
GOD'S LOVE FOR YOU ISN'T PITY, IT'S PERFECT.
God loving you isn’t the NICE thing for Him to do, it is the RIGHTEOUS thing for Him to do.
This is key in our understanding of God’s love for us because it has a direct impact on our ability to respond to His love. Remember, NICE love doesn’t cast out fear, PERFECT love does!
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” 1 John 4:18
