You Can’t Stop God From Loving You!

“We love because he first loved us.” (1 John 4:19 NIV)

We were created in God’s image to do two things on Earth: learn to love God and learn to love other people. Life is all about love.

But love all started with God. He loved us first, and that gives us the ability to love others. The Bible says in 1 John 4:19, “We love because he first loved us” (NIV).

The only reason you can love God or love anybody else is because God first loved you. And he showed that love by sending Jesus Christ to Earth to die for you. He showed that love by creating you. He showed that love by giving you everything you have in life; it’s all a gift of God’s love. 

In order to love others and to become great lovers, we first need to understand and feel how much God loves us. We don’t want to just talk about love, read about love, or discuss love; we need to experience the love of God.

We need to reach a day when we finally, fully understand how God loves us completely and unconditionally. We need to become secure in the truth that we cannot make God stop loving us.

Once we’re secure inside God’s unconditional love, we’ll start cutting people a lot of slack. We won’t be as angry as we were before. And we’ll be able to love others like God loves us.
