Live Loved

“Any fears, doubts, pride, guilt–all the things that plague us–sin, that so easily entangle us, always, if you trace it back you can find a line that goes back to disbelief that God loves you.”

Mike of Tenth Avenue North pretty much sums it up here in this video journal.

“We love – not to gain the love of God – but because He already, and does, love us.”

I believe that a lot of us still make a misconception out of this…thinking, and laying out indirectly, that to gain God’s favor we ought to do…to be. But that’s not the case, and that’s not the Gospel! God loves us and we don’t need to do anything to make Him love us. He loves us unconditionally.

And not making this clear for most Christians is probably the reason why most of us are moving away from Him. God is Love and all He does, He does out of love for you.

    OOOOOHHH MYYY GOSSHHH!!!!! (squealing)
    I LOVE TAN!!! I listen to them like…everyday. Currently, I am having a hard time finding bands to replace them, and switchfoot.

    Now, you my friend that I have not yet met, are an awesome writer! I think that you just got an A+ from me on this post.

    You are right when you say you can’t earn it. Many people throughout history think that it is a matter of how good you are or how much you do but all they are really doing is washing the outside of the filthy cup and washing the white washed tombs. The gospel tells us we can’t earn it.
    I will pray that you make an influence where you are and lead people to Christ. You have a lot of wisdom.

Please let me hear your thoughts. (via comment)
