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.–Ephesians 2:4-5
Sometimes when life gets discouraging, the best thing we can do is remind ourselves of the nature of God’s love.
One of the most beautiful things the Bible says is that while we were still sinners, Christ dies for us(Romain 5:8). He did not wait for us to deserve His love. He loves us unconditionally. To be honest, that’s hard for may of us to comprehend because we are so accustomed to having to earn everything in life.
Because of His great, wonderful and intense love for us, God poured Hi life out for us freely. That is revolutionary love-real revolutionary love that gives itself away because it can never be satisfied doing anything less.
It is God’s unconditional love that draws us to Him, His amazing grace that erases our sin, and His powerful sacrifice that makes a way for us to enter His presence. His love will never quit, never give up, and never leave you. Whenever you feel down or depressed, remember the great love that God has for you.
