About You

You are LOVED by God. There is nothing you can do, or can't do to make him love you more or less. He loves you because he loves you. Because you are His child.

More then your past
Worth it
A treasure
You matter.

Jesus Amazing Love.

It's been on my heart lately to blog about the Love of our Lord. There are many hurting people out there who don't know God, and don't know his love for them.
If you are that person, I am writing this for you. God wants me to write this for YOU.

Maybe you are someone who knows it already, but has forgotten how much he loves you, maybe your not "feeling" it right now or seeing it in your life at the moment. That doesn't mean he doesn't love you.

To some, God is just this distant being in the sky that they know exists but don't understand him or know him.


(Just for the record, the Bible is my source. No matter where you go to Church, or who your pastor is, or who you talk to, If you want the truth, read the bible. The bible is God's word.

2 Timothy 3:16~

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.

What does this mean?

From my commentary it says~

The bible is not a collection of stories or fables, myths or merly human ideas about God. It is not a human book. Through the Holy Spirit, God revealed his person and plan to certain believers who wrote down his message for his people. This process is known as inspiration. Although they used their own minds, they wrote what God wanted them to write. Scripture is completely trustworthy because God was in control of it's writing. It's words are entirely authoritative for our faith and lives. )

So what does God's word say about his love for us?

Isaiah 54:10

Though the mountains be shaken

and the hills be removed,

yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,”

says the LORD, who has compassion on you.


Zephaniah 3:17

The LORD your God is with you,

the Mighty Warrior who saves.

He will take great delight in you;

in his love he will no longer rebuke you,

but will rejoice over you with singing.”


Psalm 149:4

For the LORD takes delight in his people;

he crowns the humble with victory.


Ephesians 2:4-7

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.


1 John 4:10

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.


And the most important verse of all~

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

This is some serious love.

Do you know what Jesus went through for YOU personally? Even if you were the only human on earth, Jesus would have died just for YOU. So YOU could spend eternity in heaven. That is amazing Love. Amazing Grace. Amazing Mercy.

lways like to watch this video, although it's gruesome, it's a good reminder of how much he loves us.

So, how do we get this wonderful love from Jesus and get to know him better?

It's a gift from God. Simple as that, a gift. He graciously gives us, all we have to do is accept the gift.

First we have to know and accept that we are not God, that we are not perfect, and that we are sinners.
We are all sinners. Every single one of us humans is a sinner. None of us are perfect.


Romans 3:23
for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,


Because we are sinners, we must die. This was not God's original plan when he created Adam and Eve. They were to live forever with God in the Garden, but after they sinned, there had to be a consequence.


Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in[a] Christ Jesus our Lord.

But know that Jesus paid the debt for your sin, he died on the cross for you, so you don't have to spend eternity in Hell.


Romans 5:8

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

The gift of salvation is FREE~

Ephesians 2:8-9


For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

Jesus Christ is waiting for you to accept the gift. To open the door of your heart and mind, and let him in.

Revelation 3:20

Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.

We must receive and believe in Jesus.

John 1:12

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.

So it's that easy to accept God's love. Know that we are sinners, accept Jesus as your personal saviour, know that he is your salvation, his death earns you the right to be a child of God.

Start reading the bible , spend some time with Jesus, in his word, let him speak to you. Read about him and get to know him and who he is, and you will get to know his deep love for you.

The most wonderful part of the verse in Ephesians 2:8-9 is this~

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.

That means that we can do NOTHING, to earn God's love or Salvation. He loves us no matter what, he loved us first, even before we were born. God doesn't hold things against you, Jesus blood washed us white as snow, cleaned the dirty sin right out of our life.

You can't add anything to what you do in your life to "earn" salvation or God's love. It's a gift. Jesus is ALL we need. This is huge. If you read the bible you will know that Jesus death on the cross, his suffering is all you need to receive God's love and mercy and grace.

If you've been told that you need to be perfect, or do good works to earn God's love, you have been lied to. If you feel in your heart that God is out to get you, that he doesn't love you, that he's forgotten you, that your not important, that your not good enough, You have been lied to.

You are loved.
 You are important.
 You are good enough because of Jesus.
 God loves you more then anyone on this earth could love you.
 He wants you to accept that love from him.
 He's waiting for YOU.

He wants to have a relationship with you. He wants you to seek him, look for him, he's there. Waiting.

How awesome is that?

He's not distant. He's right here.

Look for him.

Receive him.

Bask in his love for you.

His arms are open, his lap is big.

He's waiting for you to climb up on his lap and let him wrap his loving arms around you.
