Have you ever wanted a relationship with someone so badly that you’ve been willing to do crazy, self-sacrificial things to be near that person–even if it’s for only a few moments? You long to be with them so much that they fill your night dreams and daydreams? When we’ve experience this compelling desire, it’s a powerful reminder of how much God desires us. He longs to be with us so much that He was willing for His only Son to suffer a terrible death and hell so we could be with Him. Jesus said: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) God chased us down and sacrificed more than we’ve ever given for love! What do we do with such great sacrificial love? Will we reject it and run from it? Will we experiment with lesser loves when He’s ready love us like we’ve never been loved before? Through Jesus, God gave us the greatest love story we could ever possess. No one has done as much for us in love as He has. He gave us the gift of a relationship with Him. To have it, we must turn to Him and stop running. When we accept the gift of salvation, His gift is planted in our heart; and unbelievably, God wants to give us more than just eternal security–He wants us to KNOW Him NOW! We’ve rejected Him more than anyone we’ve loved has ever rejected us–yet, He continues to woo us. He’s not looking for our performance, He wants our heart. When our heart is His, we are filled with His Spirit and love makes us beautiful, powerful, wise and loving. In Him, we’re all we ever need to be.
