    How Has God Revealed His Love to You?

    Do you ever feel like you don’t matter, or are insignificant? Sometimes we can believe something based on our current situation or circumstance. But just because things don’t go our way, or we don’t have someone telling us we are loved…doesn’t mean you aren’t loved! Jesus LOVES you SO much!

    Where God’s love is, there is NO fear, because God’s perfect love drives out fear. It is punishment that makes a person fear, so love is not made perfect in the person who fears (1 John 4:18).

    God sent his ONLY son to show you this love! Would you allow your son or daughter to die, or would you lay down your life for your friends? JESUS did.

    He even died for people who hated him, mocked him, scoffed at him. THIS IS LOVE. Jesus had compassion and said, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do.” WOW…this is unthinkable, unimaginable love!

    The chief priests, the teachers of the law and the elders mocked him. ‘He saved others,’ they said, ‘but he can’t save himself! He’s the King of Israel! Let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. He trusts in God. Let God rescue him now if he wants him, for he said, ‘I am the Son of God’ (Matthew 27:41-43).

    See, PI readers, Jesus Christ COULD have taken Himself off the cross and called on ten thousand angels, but if He did, we wouldn’t have the forgiveness of sins. He was our ransom, the ultimate sacrificial lamb, and He paid our debt of sin! All we need to do is believe and walk with God!

    In the Old Testament, there needed to be the shedding of blood (animal sacrifice) for something to be pure or cleansed, or for forgiveness to take place. Can you imagine having to make a sacrifice every time we messed up?

    We no longer have to do this because JESUS paid it all. There are no strings attached, no fine print, there’s no catch here. It is simply a FREE GIFT of LOVE. All God asks us is to BELIEVE!

    For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no man can boast (Ephesians 2:8).

    Not that complicated, right? It seems like we would owe God for such a HUGE gift! NO, that is not the case at all…HE LOVES YOU FOR YOU! We love and obey Him in return!

    We love him, because he first loved us (1John 4:19).

    You are cherished, prized, and valued BEYOND measure! God said that He cares for you more than the grains of sand on the seashore! His love outnumbers the stars in the sky!

    PI girls, how has God revealed His perfect love to you?

    1. Love this reminder! I remember one time I prayed that God would show me his love through a rainbow. He outdid Himself and showed me a double rainbow and a sunset after a huge storm. One of the best moments ever!
