Works cannot should not assure us that God loves us. Satan tries to wear people out thinking that when they work and ‘do’ certain things; God will love them. However, that is a lie, a lie that will get you worn out if you fall into that trap. God loves us, He loves us so much that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
It is when we receive His love that we begin to love Him in return, when we taste and see that God is good, we are in awe of His love for us and that love melts our hearts. It is even when we receive His love that we can truly love others.
God’s love is unconditional, no matter what we do or how far we go God still loves us, when we get His love into us, good works naturally flow from us, we begin to do good as a way of life and not trying hard to gain His love.
I pray that you receive God’s love today and that He showers you with His unconditional love. Amen.
Prayer: Lord, Your word says that You love me even when I was still a sinner, help me to know and receive Your love today so I can begin to love you and love others too. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
