As we look around our world, we see so many examples of what love is not. If we are honest in our assessment of our own lives, there are many times that we do not love as God does. In our human state, we are incapable of loving others perfectly, as our actions are marred by sin. We are unable to love God flawlessly either for the same reason. That is the beauty of grace! That is what is so gorgeous about the cross! Despite our inabilities, God loved us and found us worthy of sacrificing His only Son for. If you ever find yourself feeling unworthy of being loved, remember this…God deemed you so lovable you were worth dying for. Pray you realize how loved you are!
This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
1 John 4:10
