Love Notes from God: Day 1

Love Notes from God:
I Will Always Love You

God's love is always available to us, we just have to receive it. God loves you consistently, and unconditionally. Sometimes, we treat our relationship with God like we treat our relationships here on earth. If you get into an argument with your best friend, you may not speak to her for the rest of the day. If your child gets in trouble at school, you may punish him by taking away his favorite gaming system. Although we express our love in many different ways, the amazing thing about God is, He is not like us. There is nothing you can do that will cause God to stop loving you! God's love for you does not depend on if you read your bible enough, if you made it to bible study this week, or if you prayed enough today. Sometimes we can't help but wonder: Does God really love me? Even when I feel unloved and unlovable? Even when I really mess up? And the answer is YES. He doesn't love you any more or any less because of what you did or did not do. We can't earn God's love by the things we do. No matter how much or how badly people have sinned, God's love can still reach them. Even drug dealers. Even murderers. The worst person you can imagine can receive God's forgiveness by humbly asking for it. There's no such thing as a person God "no longer wants". There are only people who haven't accepted his love.
