Christ Is Alive!

“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered” Matthew 10:30

People love base on their personal agenda and selfish criteria but to God no Christian is too old, too naive, too ugly, too poor, too uneducated, too stupid and too annoying to be loved. It doesn’t matter who your parents were or what family you came from and in what part of the world you were born because when you accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, you automatically become an accepted (worthy of love) member of the elite family of the most prominent and only living God. God is your Father and like any good father, He has plan for your life, great unimaginable and extraordinary plans but unlike your earthly father, He’s got the means, the power and the will to bring the plans to fulfillment.

Have you been looking for the love that surpasses all intelligence? Has your search led you to heartbreaks, disappointments, loneliness and despair? Then look no further than the loving arms of God. No matter what you have done and where you have been, I assure you, He loves you. (Romans 5:8). Once in His family, He will bring the right people into your life. He will turn your sorrows into joy. He will repair you damage relationships. He will restore your peace. He knows you well but He loves you anyway. He doesn't love you because you are lovable or because of some misguided notion of love; He loves you because He is love. He created you to have a loving relationship with Him, and He sacrificed His own Son (who also willingly died for you- John 3:16) to restore that relationship. He loves you. You are precious in His eyes. He will never abandon you. You can count on His unconditional love.

God's love towards us is demonstrated by the sacrifice He made on our behalf. "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13). Friend, God loves us. Why else would He die? What kind of lover would willingly offer give his life for yours? God love for us is serious. We are loved by the most amazing Lover of all, no doubt about it. Dear friend, rely on God's unconditional and immutable love and you will not have to be lonely another day of your life.

Will you share His message of love with at least one person today? I trust that you will.

Praise the Lord!
