We love because he first loved us..

Having been a very insecure person and struggled to find worth, l can tell you that l often found myself finding it hard to love people.  It seemed words of people would get be all upset and unknowingly people would do things and have me all heart broken. The root was in my past as you would know if you read my blog on What determines your self worth.

It took me a long time to understand that disagreement doesn’t mean disapproval. Just because people disagree with you doesn’t mean something is wrong with you. I constantly found myself associating people who had different opinions with me as haters.  To me it meant they didn’t love me.

I thank God, because he then taught me to love myself. He taught me about his love which is unconditional. It doesn’t matter what l do or don’t do he still loves me.

In Romans 8:35-39 we read that nothing can separate us from the love of God! Nothing in this world and through God we are more than conquerors because he first loved us. 

However people do wrong us, even more the people we love, the people we are to work with even in our churches. When that happenes remember to pray for those that wrong you. You will find that you really can’t hate those who you deliberately pray for.

Be intentional about loving others it pleases God when we love, because God himself is Love. 1 John 4:8 says “whoever does not love has not known God for God is love”.

Love you all

Shalom

    Thank you for sharing such deep reality. May the Lord who loved you lead you to share his unconditional love among his people. God knows you, your coming in and your going out. He knew you before you were made . He will direct your paths.
    Let go and let God do he s will.
