If Only…

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8

We often take for granted the steps that were taken for our freedom. We walk in peace, and often prosperity, oblivious to the price that was paid for us to live such a life. I find myself often saying to God, “If only you would do this…, I’d know You love me.” Sure we might not say it verbally, or only to close friends, but we are all guilty of this at one time or another.

I know I needed this, but let me remind you as well. God loves you and I more then we could even fathom. He’s already bankrupt heaven to show us that, and there’s no doubt, if it was necessary (which it isn’t), He would do it again in a second.

Why does He loves us so? Because we are the prize of His creation. I know I don’t usually feel like that, but it’s not because He hasn’t tried to show me. It’s most often because I let myself get distracted by the frustration of my humanity. If you’re guilty today of the “If only…” statement, remember: He’s already proven His love and if you stop for a moment and look, He’s still pursuing you now.

  1. Definitely. It’s funny- so much of our worry as believers is, “Does God love me?” “Amy I pleasing to God?” “Does God approve of me?” And the fact of the matter is, even if God never did another thing for us again- never blessed us with another friend, another financial blessing, another moment where we feel His presence- we should be filled with such an unshakable assurance of His love for us, just from calvary.

    Good thoughts!
