Because He Has Loved Me

Because  He Has  Loved Me

We need  to seriously consider  the kind of love  we have  in our hearts.     Do we make out  like we love  just because we want something  in return  to satisfy  our greeds?

God Almighty  has a different kind  of love  for us.     Romans 5:8 says,

But  God demonstrates  His own love  toward us,  in that  while we were yet sinners,  Christ died  for us.

That is a true love  —  to love those who are  “yet sinners”.     God’s honest love  went so far as  to have Christ Jesus die  “for us”  “while we were yet sinners”.     We will all be “sinners”  for our whole earthly life.     In spite of that fact,  God still loves us  and does many things  to help us  through this time  of temptation,  when we look  to Him  in love  for all our needs.

God has even promised  in Psalm 91:14,

Because  he has loved Metherefore  I will deliver him;
I will set him  securely  on high,  because he has known  My name.

When we realize  just how very much  God loves us  in Christ Jesus,  our love  for God grows  and blossoms.     Our love  for God  becomes sure  and steadfast  as we grow  in His word.     Because  God loves us  and we love God,  God has promised  to “deliver” us  and “set”  us   “securely  on high”.     God’s deliverance is what enables  and strengthens us  to make it through  our trials  and temptations.     We will go through times  of suffering,  but God will be with us  every step  of the way  —  until we reach our heavenly home,  “securely  on high”.

That is so comforting  in times  of trials.     So glad  for God’s faithfulness,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You for loving us  so that we might love You.”

Love,
Margaret
