"But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ- by grace you have been saved."
Do you know that God’s love for you is never ending? He loved you because of His great love and rich mercy. Even when sometimes you feel unloved by the people around you, God wants you to know that He will forever love you, and that love is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Even when you were dead because of your sins, He made you alive. Christ died and rose again from the dead to prove His love and mercy to you. Isn't this a very wonderful news? We are saved not by our own works but by God's grace through our faith.
The sad reality though is sometimes we tend to make things, beliefs, and actions that we think could guarantee us our salvation. It seems too good to be true, but what Jesus did on the cross is already a finished work. Nothing more, nothing less that we can add on it.
You can celebrate because He saved you. You can love because God loves you.
Embrace this truth today. GOD LOVES YOU.
