HE LOVES US SO MUCH
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
We have a compassionate tender hearted and loving Heavenly Father. He loves us so much He gave His Son to die for our sins. Every time I think about how much He loves us I am filled with gratitude for Him. I know that He loves everybody but to think that God loves me brings tears of joy to my eyes.
On August 14, 1980 when I invited Jesus into my heart to be my personal Saviour, our loving Heavenly Father adopted me into His family. God has been so good to me through the years. I have lost count of the many times He has comforted and encouraged me when I was hurting and sad.
Not only does God love us, He never yells at us, hits us or curses us. Several years ago a little boy came to my home and asked if he could come in for a while. The boy had tears in his eyes and I could tell he was afraid of something. I asked him what was wrong and he said he was afraid of his dad.
We don’t have to be afraid of our Heavenly Father. He protects us and supplies our every need and sometimes He gives us things we don’t need just because He loves us. We can trust Him to take care of us and protect us from the vicious attacks of satan and the world. What a loving Heavenly Father!
Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me, for adopting me into Your family and for giving me the privilege of serving Jesus. I love You so much and I appreciate all You have done for me and for all You are going to do. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
