He wants you



Have you ever thought about how much God wants to call us His own? The message I often hear evangelists, pastors, and Bible teachers talk about is how we must come to God through our faith and accept Him into our lives. This is true. After all, God let’s us a make a choice to have Him in our lives—or not. He is gracious enough to give us a choice. But have you ever really thought about how much God wants to take you into His arms and call you His own?

Psalm 103:11 says, “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him.”

Romans 8:32 says, “He who did not spare His own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will He not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”

 John 1:12 says, “Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave them the right to become children of God.”

I John 3:1a says, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!”

Ephesians 3:17b-18 says, “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and deep is the love of Christ...”

There are times that we all feel unloved. Life gets hectic, people in our lives get busy, and days go by. The love we expect from our human relationships can fail us depending on the day, the stressors, and the mood. Just remember that God’s love for you is unfailing, unconditional, never-ending, and meant specifically for you. There is no love like His—for you. You are loved so much.
