Here’s my first post of 2018 on my new COME FLY with GOD series. God wants you to be free! He desires you to get up off the ground and come fly with Him, high above every difficulty of life. In this series, we will learn to love, hope and dream with purpose using scriptures to confirm our identity in Him. To begin, my focus will be about lifting off with His love.
Do you know how important it is to know that God loves you? So often we look to other things to validate ourselves whether it be other people, our talents and gifts, resources, etc. etc. But those will never satisfy!
God’s love is not like anything you can humanly comprehend. You don’t earn it. You don’t deserve it. You can’t mess it up. It is simply bestowed upon you because you are His beloved creation.
Now maybe you are thinking… Hey, doesn’t the Bible talk about condemning people if they don’t have the Savior Jesus in their heart? I don’t understand how a loving God can condemn good people? That certainly doesn’t sound Christian. Doesn’t Jesus love everyone?
Well, God isn’t just a good Father, He is also a perfect judge. The truth is that all sin must be judged, and payment must made for sin. Honestly, a good judge may act in mercy, but he still must ensure that justice is served. After all, wouldn’t you want justice? (Now come on, don’t you want justice for wrong things that happened to you in your life?)
God knew that we could never be righteous or perfect in our own strength. He knew we could never fix ourselves. (I’ve tried at failed many times. ~Ha Ha!) That is exactly why God sent His Son to earth – to pay all the debts of sin on the cross with His blood.
Always remember that GOD WILL NEVER CONDEMN YOU. It’s your own sin that will do that. And that is why you need to choose Jesus, to authorize payment for your sin, and then walk in His grace. (Code word ~ freedom!)
GOD HAS ALWAYS LOVED YOU, and HE ALWAYS WILL. He wants you to spend eternity with Him in heaven. Nothing that you do will ever make Him love you more, and nothing you didn’t do will make Him love you less. He is love! In fact, Jesus showed us what our Heavenly Father is really like by being the exact representation of the Father’s love here on earth (Hebrews 1:3). When you accept Jesus as your savior, you are born into the family of God. Your new life has begun. You officially become a child of God and receive a great spiritual inheritance. This is great news, but we need to let is SINK IN!
So go ahead and say it….. I AM LOVED by GOD.
I will be blogging more about the love of God for you. God is inviting you and me to fly above all our struggles and problems, and come fly with Him. It won’t be by your strength and power, but with His. To lift off with God’s love, you must know who He is, your good loving Heavenly Father, and who He has made you to be.
- He accepts you.
- He forgives you.
- He calls you His child.
- He makes you righteous and perfect.
- He fills you with His Spirit.
- And so on and so on.
Allow the Holy Spirit transform this truth into your heart….. I AM LOVED.
