It may seem like just one step too far – that the God who created Heaven, Earth and everything in them would have any interest in you and me. Yet that’s what the bible says; it’s what Jesus told us and it’s what more than a billion people experience today!
GOD LOVES YOU!
I like to think of it like this. When I was in my 20’s I created living beings – with a little help from my wife. Our two daughters are now grown up and have long since left home. They may have had bad times and they may have offended us during those years (especially the teenage ones) but did that stop us from loving them? Of course not. Why do we love them – because they are our daughters.
The bible says that God made us in His image. Is it, therefore, too difficult to imagine that, just as my wife and I love our daughters, God loves His ultimate creation – mankind – even though we may have ignored Him and disobeyed Him – He still loves us.
Jesus taught us that … “”For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 NLT)
