Why should we believe our friends, or a pastor, or a counselor, or some random person just because they say God loves us? If they really knew us, if they really knew our histories, how we have been hurt and the mistakes we have made and those we keep making, they would know God can’t possibly REALLY love us, right? Have you ever thought that way? Are you thinking that way right now?
When you place your faith in Jesus and what He did on the cross for you, and you learn to follow Him, you can look forward to eternity in heaven with God. But His love for you isn’t reserved just for eternity. His love for you is right now also – even in this very moment.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16-18
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,… John 1:12 NASB
