Thankful For His Love

Romans 5:8

But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

Why would God do that for us? Give His only Son to die an excruciating death for us...you and me!

Most of the time, in our own eyes, we are nothing. But to God...we are everything! Before we ever thought about Him...He loved us! We could never be good enough to deserve His love. We could never earn His love or win it in a contest. The only thing that we can do is accept His love. That can be hard at times because we feel so unworthy. But God doesn't look at us that way. He sees us as His beautiful children. All He wants from us is that we love Him back and live for Him. He won't ever turn His back on us. He loves us.

As you go through your day today be thankful for His love!

Hi Chelle - amen, great post. We can only accept because we don't deserve His love, but He so wants us to experience His love. WE hold Him back. So good to see you here again my friend. I was MISSING you :)
Thank you for linking up.
God bless

It is truly awesome how God loves us and showers us with unlimited forgiveness, completely unearned and undeserved.
Sharing your sentiments completely!
