God Loves You - Be Thankful


cffblog6.jpgNovember 21, 2017 Tuesday)

My grandmother was born in 1885 in Leon County, Texas, but moved with her family to Angelina County (Lufkin) when she was still a little girl. She told me they moved in a covered wagon.

As far as I know, she never thought I ever did one thing wrong. The words, "unconditional love," don't adequately describe the total acceptance she gave me. If she ever scolded me about anything at all, during her entire lifetime, I have no memory of it. I felt the same love from my grandfather as well.

It's good to be loved. And it's good to love.

That's why Jesus had so much to say about it. He urged us to love and forgive others.

The love God has for us is the first thing we think of when asked to give our personal testimony of salvation in Christ. He loves us unconditionally. Absolutely. Totally. There can be no greater love than the love of God for us all.

I say, without reservation, that God loves you, whoever you are. Though His love is for the whole world, He loves you as much as He would if you were the only person in the world.

"You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:6-8 NIV).

In Acts 16, we are given the historical account of a man asking, "What must I do to be saved?" The answer given (Acts 16:31) was, "Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved." The answer is still the same today. And it's possible because of God's love.
