Because He Loves You

I saw a video in my small group at church a few weeks ago. It was part of the Respectfully Yours series by Emerson & Sarah Eggerichs. This particular video was focused on not finding our worth in our spouse, but in the God who created us and loves us. Loves us so much that He sent his only son to die for us. So much that He waits patiently, hoping we will come to Him and have a relationship with Him.

Not love like we know as humans. We use the word “love” for things that don’t matter. We love food, cars, music, tv, the weather (or not!). We have used “love” so loosely, that it has lost all meaning.

That is not how God loves us. He loves us with an unrelenting, passionate, faithful, constant, immoveable, unconditional love. Love we can’t experience anywhere else. And when we wonder if we are worthy of God’s love, when we feel unloveable and unlovely, it doesn’t change God’s love. His love for us isn’t based on us. It’s rooted in His character.

So the next time you ask why in the world God would love you, hear the echo of Emerson Eggerich’s words like I do.

He loves you.

Because He loves you.

Because He loves you.

Because He loves you.
