God loves you(period)
God loves you exactly as you are, no matter what you’ve done, or what you’re about to do.
God loves you if you’re: gay, straight, Republican, Democrat, left-brained or right brained. God loves you if you’ve been abused, abandoned, or cheated on. God loves you even if your parents didn’t. God loves you if you had an abortion or wish you had. God loves you even if you don’t love him. God loves you when you’re bitter, petty, and passive-aggressive. God loves you even if you still listen to Nickleback. God loves you if you had an affair, stole money, or have an addiction. God loves you if you’re divorced, depressed, or desolate. God loves you if you smoke weed, drink too much, or look at porn. God loves you if you made porn. Are you getting this?
God loves you and there is nothing you can do about it. God’s love for you is completely out of your hands. You’re his child and he’s crazy about you – despite all the crazy you do.
Now, I know it hasn’t always felt like God loves you. There were dark times when you felt alone. You’ve been angry (or still are) about when God didn’t show up for you. Or maybe you’ve been told by some church or pastor somewhere that God could only love you if you changed. I’m sorry. But let me assure you God is in love with you.
It all begins with God’s love for you. And if no one has ever told you that or taught you how to live and abide is his love, come and find a church that never stops sharing the message Jesus died to tell you – God loves you and there is nothing you can do about it.
