Love That Exists
Matthew 5:17- Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
When we are called to share the truth about Jesus we shouldn’t withhold any of the truth or the laws in His word. How do we earn His love when we struggle to keep the laws? I mean haven't you ever felt like you sinned against God and failed Him? Then we wonder how could He possibly love me when I am always failing Him. Who am I to share all the truth about Jesus when I can’t walk the straight and narrow path myself?
We will always fall short of Gods standard, but Jesus didn’t, and He came to earth and fulfilled the law because we couldn’t. That doesn’t mean we don’t pursue the standard of God. It means you can’t earn a love that already exists for you. We don’t earn Gods love, He has loved us from the beginning of time, and you can’t do anything to change His mind about His love for you. He will always love you, no matter what. Jesus went to the cross and died for our sins, was laid in the grave and rose again, defeating sin and death. You don’t have to earn Gods love. He will always love you. We all make mistakes and even through that His love remains. You can’t earn a love that already exists for you. He loves us unconditionally. You are a child of God. Will you give your life to the One who gave His?
