"Draw near to God and He will draw near to you." James 4:8
“You are Loved.” Those words will mean different things to different readers depending on who you hear it from and how you are feeling at the time.
Last Sunday our Senior Kid’s Under Construction (Sunday School) class created this cool street art which communicates the message “You are Loved.” I saw it several times in design form and finished form and after a slow start, the message has really been growing on me.
“You are LOVED” God’s love for us is indiscriminate. It’s not based on actions or inactions, perfections or faults. His love for you is based entire on His limitless capacity and desire to love us.
“You ARE loved” This little word, are, indicates a lot. Being loved is a right now reality. It’s not just a future hope that might one day happen. Neither is it a past memory thinking back to a time when you were once loved. This very moment right where you sit, stand or recline reading this, “You Are Loved.”
“YOU are loved” This is a message addressed personally to you. It’s not just to every person on the planet it’s also specifically for you to know, experience and enjoy.
The question is not, "Am I loved?” It’s, “Will you let yourself be completely filled with the love that Jesus Christ already offers to you every moment of every night and day?
May Grace, Peace and the Love of Jesus Christ strengthen and sustain you.
