You are loved. Maybe you don’t feel it, but you are. You are loved completely, with everything the Creator of the universe has. You are loved now. You were loved before the foundation of the world. You will be loved forever. There is no greater love than the love that has been set upon you.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 NKJV
God so loved you that He gave Jesus to pay for your sins and bring you near to Him. John 3:16 has been called the greatest verse in the Bible. That is because the greatest being, set the greatest love, upon the greatest creation, to offer the greatest sacrifice, to cancel the greatest sins, to cause the greatest salvation. You are loved with the greatest love. The greatest love was demonstrated by the greatest sacrifice of Jesus.
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8 NKJV
God loved you with the greatest love, when you were at your absolute worst. In your deepest sin , Jesus died for you. He died as the greatest gift God could give. Jesus died so that you could live in the greatest relationship that is possible. There is no greater love than that.
“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” John 15:13
Jesus laid down His life for you. He left heaven to be born in this fallen world as a baby. He lived a perfect sinless life for you. Jesus kept all the laws of God the Father, and earned a perfect righteousness for you. Jesus was beaten for you. Jesus died on the cross in the most horrible way imaginable to bear the wrath of God and pay the price for all your sins. Jesus rose from the dead for your justification. And Jesus ascended to heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father, ruling and reigning, living forever, to make intercession for you.
There is no greater love than this, and some good news is that this greater love is everlasting love. This love that has been given to you lasts for the greatest amount of time: forever.
“The LORD has appeared of old to me, saying: “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.”
Jeremiah 31:3 NKJV
With God’s loving kindness He has drawn you to Jesus. You can be born again and live in His salvation. You can live in the reality forever, that there is no greater love than this.
If you don’t know Jesus, I want to give you the opportunity to trust Him for your salvation and receive His finished work by faith. If you want to make Jesus the Lord of your life, simply pray this in your heart, as a way to put your faith in Him. Say, “ Jesus, I make you the Lord of my life. I know I’m a sinner, but I believe. I believe that You are the Son of God. I believe You died on the cross for my sins, and I believe that You rose on the third day for my justification. I ask you to save me now. I receive you by faith. In Jesus’ name. Amen”
