In today’s chaotic culture and amidst the wide range of world events, we may feel like nothing is certain. It may seem the very foundations we have put our trust in are being shaken. Yet, there is one thing we can put our trust in.
Has the chaos caused you to question nearly everything? Do you feel lost in a world of change? Are you grasping for anything solid to hold on to? You need look no further than the love of Jesus Christ. His love endures forever.
We may find ourselves in new situations each day. We may discover the person we thought we could count on has let us down. Our place of work may suddenly decide they no longer need us. Our once dependable vehicle may suddenly break down, costing us several hundred dollars to repair. The very dependable becomes undependable, and we are shaken.
The one thing we can count on is Jesus’ love. His love includes more than the mere word might imply, especially in today’s vernacular. Love is a word we use without thinking. We often use it to mean we like something for the moment, but we can change our mind at any time. We may even use it to mean something is pretty, knowing its beauty will fade with time. That is not the meaning of love when we speak of Christ’s love for us.
His love starts before time and extends beyond time. His heart aches for us. He wants to give us only the best. But His love will also allow us to go through hard times in order to learn a lesson that will provide us a better life. His love is perfect, just as He is perfect. His love is unending, lasting for eternity.
There is nothing we can do to stop Him from loving us. There is nothing anyone else can do to stop Him from loving us. Not even Satan and all his demons can stop Jesus from loving us. No matter the situation we find ourselves in, Jesus loves us.
His love goes beyond our imagination. We cannot fathom the depths of His love. Think about it for just a moment. He left the perfection of heaven to come to a broken and dirty world to sacrifice Himself for us. What greater love can there ever be?
I pray we all recognize the love Jesus has for us. I pray we contemplate the depth of His love. I pray each of us will love Him to the best of our ability. Rest easy knowing Jesus has an endless love for you. Be comforted by the thought of His love. Reach out to Him knowing He loves you.
Romans 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
