113. The Lies We Believe; Gods' Love Must be Earned
Do you have strong faith in the Lord? If so, think about what your faith has brought you. Do you feel you need to measure up to something for your faith to increase? What is your view of God?
Do you know the song; "Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so?" It was much easier for me to believe, as a little child, that Jesus loves me. Doubt crept in as the years flew by, as life's disappointments and pain were frequent, as busyness overtook my life.
I learned that God cannot stop loving me and that His love is NOT dependent on my actions! A Bible verse spoke His love clearly; "For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves..." (Ephesians 2:8-9). Grace of God truly is His gift to you and me! Would you like to strengthen your belief?
Memorizing words through verses of His love for you is the first step to strengthening your belief. Joining a fellowship of believers, accepting theirs and your own imperfections, is the second one. The third step is to realize just how often God touches you through the actions of the Holy Spirit. I learned to reach out in prayer and received His love in return.
Go ahead and sing JESUS LOVES ME THIS I KNOW, FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO. It truly never needs to be earned. Just love Him and follow His wishes through the Bible.
