How Much Does God Love Me?
Have you ever thought about how much God loves you? Have you ever just stopped for a moment and thought about how much God loves you? I think it can be difficult for us to truly grasp the idea. It’s easy for me to know how much my wife and kid loves me. I get to see them every day, and they do things that show that they love me. We don’t have the same kind of physical interaction with God as we do with our friends and family, which can make it difficult to grasp the magnitude at which He loves us.
Let’s look at Ephesians 1:3-6 3 Blessed is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavens in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in love before him. 5 He predestined us to be adopted as sons through Jesus Christ for himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 6 to the praise of his glorious grace that he lavished on us in the Beloved One.
Before God had even created this planet we are living on, he chose us to be his children. He knew we were going to sin, and He created us anyway. Not only that, but He sent his one child who would never turn His back on Him into the world to die so that we might be able to be with God forever.
I remember how much I loved my son before he was even born. Even when he was a small, weird, alien looking thing. I can’t imagine how much more God loves me, even before I existed. Next time you are wondering if God loves you, remember these words in Ephesians. Before the foundations of the world were created, God loved you.
