A simple truth with an eternal lesson. God loved us before we loved Him. 1 John 4:10 says this
In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
The implication is reaches us all. God’s love for you is not dependent on your actions, words, thoughts, motives, or desires. This is freedom! God loved you before you ever had an action, word, thought, motive, or desire. His love doesn’t grow based on what you do. It also doesn’t diminish. That is the beauty of the gospel…God loves you because of His love, not because of you! His love propelled Him to send Jesus to take the punishment for your sins. What an amazing God we serve!
Accept His love, live in the freedom of His love!
