God’s Love Letter to You

I once heard a pastor define faith as “knowing God”. And to know God is to first know that he loves you.

God IS love.

I believe that you cannot fully love others or be motivated to take care of yourself unless you are convinced of God’s love for you.

You also cannot do the good works to which He calls you because they require the power of faith working through love within you.

To encourage you in faith and love today, please watch this video that a reader named Rachelle emailed to me that illustrates God’s love for you. It brought me to tears:

In addition, here are some scriptures that detail God’s love for you. Consider them as God’s love letter to you and note how we start out as downtrodden, but end up victorious!

Please pass this message on to everyone you know so they too can become rooted and grounded in God’s love.

  • Thank you Kimberly, God has given you a gift of teaching. Thank you for the Scriptures, my plan is to write them in my journal and read them often. Understanding how much God truly loves us, it’s so important in this journey of faith. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God, we need Jesus. He is our only hope. Once we understand God‘s love, that He is not rejecting us and has sent Jesus on a rescue mission to save us, we can truly love Him back. And have His heart for loving others .
