God’s love is for you, a redux

This post is for people who do not have a relationship with God. Okay? So please save your “fire and brimstone” for those who call themselves “saints” but are living like “aints.” ktheenksbai.

I just want you to know that God has loved you with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3). God gave His best for you (Romans 8:32), literally spared no expense (Romans 5:9-11). In fact, when we were yet in our sins Romans 5:6-8), God loved us so much that Jesus died for us.

You are loved. God’s love is for you. Feel the emphasis in each word. Say it with conviction.

GOD’S love is for you.

God’s LOVE is for you.

God’s love IS for you.

God’s love is FOR you.

God’s love is for YOU.

You a heaux? God loves you. Pimp? God loves you. Drug addict? God loves you. Adulterer? God loves you. Liar? God loves you. Thief? God loves you. Envious? God loves you? Smoker? God loves you? Drinker? God loves you. Hateful? God loves you? Hard to deal with? God loves you? Abused? God loves you. Abandoned? God loves you. Lost? God loves you. Confused? God loves you. LGBTQIA? God loves you. Atheist? God loves you. Murderer? God loves you. Abusive? God loves you. Pedophile? God loves you. Whoremonger? God loves you. I cannot name all the things we do, have done, are going to do–just know that whatever category you fall in? God’s love is for you.

Jesus died for you, same as anybody else.

God wants you, same as anybody else.

God loves you more than you love yourself. And He loves you so much that He has given you time. Time to getchoself in His presence so that He can get you together. Time to make a decision to commit yourself to loving Him back. Because dedicating yourself to loving Him back means so much more than we can imagine.

Don’t wait too late. Okay? Don’t take God’s loving kindness as a sign of weakness. The word states very clearly that “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). Eventually, you will die–natural causes, accidents, disease, drug/alcohol abuse, somebody might kill you, you might kill yo self–and then it will be too late. The consequences of our sinful nature and the mortality of our flesh will win out in this physical dispensation. But our souls–the essence of who we are–lives on.  I want–God desperately wants–you to spend eternity with Him. Not anywhere else. This I know. The way to start this process is simple: Jesus Christ. The crux of the cross is that God loves you and before the world was created, had already made a way for you to get back into God’s presence. God’s demonstrated love in the earth is forgiveness; and forgiveness came in the form and final sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

Everybody that tries to turn into a story, intellectualize it—well. Either you believe the gift exists for you to receive or you don’t. I pray that you do.

Take advantage of that neverending, everlasting kind of love. God does not disappoint. And I am praying for you, as Paul did once, that you may have the power “to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” (Ephesians 3:18-19).
