God loves you scripture:
Jesus said “He who loves me will be loved by my father” God’s love is steadfast and will never change. It comforts us, and is revealed through Jesus.
“Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.”
” Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.”
What a wonderful promise. In which religion will the God you worship would come to you and make his home. And if and when they come and resides within you, you will get the best in finances and health.
Your bank account will prosper and your stocks will make a sudden surge. And your marriage will prosper. And your long-lost child will return home. You will get a promotion at work.
You will be happy as never before. Then when you try to analyze it, you will realize that your ways are guided by a super power within you.
If someone come and try to attack you physically or verbally they will be repulsed. And nobody will ever challenge you at work or anywhere else.
When my friend was waiting in line at the local coffee shop, when he reached the cashier he was informed that a complete stranger had already paid off his bill. This is no surprise as this is God showing his love towards you.
Many times this has happened in my life. When I was studying, did not know if I will ever get funds, Then some stranger would appear from nowhere and pay my tuition.
There was a student from South Africa, and he had come to ORU all by faith. His first semester’s tuition was paid by the university. Unfortunately, he could not find funds to pay for the second semester. He was about to go back home with disappointment.
Ironically, he received funds from a complete stranger from Florida. They never knew each other. The donor said, he was instructed by God in a dream to pay his tution.
This is the power of God.
” and that you may love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life, “
So, always remember you are God’s Beloved. And you are special in God’s eyes. You are not an ordinary person.
1 John 4:20-
” Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.”
You need to stop hating them, forgive them and start loving them. What God is saying if you hate others how can you love God. For God is love.
You can not just love the people you like, you need to love them all including liars, enemies and forgive even murderers,
This may not sound fair to you, but God looks at it in a different way. It is called “unconditional love”
The people who sin and do not believe in God will eventually go to hell.But even if they accept Jesus as God and savior just moments before death, they will go to heaven,
Jesus on the cross told the robber on his left “You will be in paradise” this is meaning that as this man accepted Jesus as God just before he died he will go to heaven.
“The most important one,” answered Jesus, is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. 31 The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
And do not neglect the strangers you meet in public, like in the mall, subway, bus, corner store. It is not difficult if you know the relevant scriptures.
I encourage you to set aside time to read the bible once a day. In this way you would have a great understanding of the word or bible.
“I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself for me”.
And if you do and sin, do not worry, unlike in other religions, there a way to escape from God’s wrath.
You must confess your sins. I know Catholics confess their sins to the father in church. But for others, you can confess your sins while at prayer at home.
All you need to do is confess your sins and ask for forgiveness. You can pray “Father, I confess that I have sinned. I repent of all sins, please forgive me” And you will be forgiven. Caution, however do not make this a habit as eventually God and the power of God will leave you. By this I mean the spirit of God, the Holy Spirit.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
You might think, oh he was God and he did not feel the pain for he was God as a human. You forget that he was born just like any of us. And had the same feelings like any of us. Felt the same pain we would have had when he was crucified.
The same pain we would feel when they broke his bones. The shame when even his clothes were divided. The weight of the cross that teared into his shoulder bones. You and I would have never been able to go through that pain.
Even though he was son of God, he felt pain the same way we do. No difference. When the Egyptians flogged him with nailed iron belt, he was crying in pain. Yet he did not give in. He had an assignment to fulfill.
He was the gift of God to this sinful world. Whoever believes in him will not perish, but have an eternal life.
Eternal life means you Never die. Yes all die physically in the end in this world, but once you die there is no re-incarnation, or going to hell of you are true Christian.
All true Christians goes to heaven and live there forever. In heaven there is no death, No crying, no pain. No need to work. There is heavenly food, call “Manna”. No need to marry. You will be like an angel with Jesus.
And you will live in mansions made of shining gold. And no need to buy BMW or Benz cars, private jets. You will be flying o your own. You will travel many times faster that sound, light.
It is important to remember,that if you love Jesus, you will be loved by the father. You love him by obeying his teachings. You cannot hate others and expect your Father in heaven to love you. He sent his own son to the world that whosoever that believes him will not perish but will have everlasting life.
