The Epitome of Love

There is no trouble that God can't see you through. Many people seem to feel that the trouble they are going through is their own fault. And many times they are right. However, that does not make God love them or care for them any less. He IS love. And there is no way that we could ever "earn" His love... if we were able to earn it, that would make it attainable by "being good"... but none of us are good. We TRY to be good, but we make mistakes. Every day. The Bible says that "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:" Romans 3:22, 23.

What does THAT mean? It means we all do things wrong, and none of us could ever be good enough, because God is perfect. We aren't. That is why He sent His only Son Jesus, to die once for us, a sacrifice to make atonement for all of our sins. He was crucified upon a cross, a willing sacrifice, to die for us because He loves us so very much... and then He rose again 3 days later!

Hard to believe? Not if you get to know Him :) The more you read His Word (the Bible), the more you learn, and the closer you grow to Him. He longs to know you... He loves you! Isn't it worth it to get to know Him, too? I can firmly tell you without hesitation... it most certainly is :)

Amen Jen your words are so true. We must spend time with him, so we can learn and grow. At times we get so wrapped up in our activities we lose sigh of that.
