I noticed, that I as a christian am ready to believe a lot of things from the bible. I believe that miracles still happen. People can get healed from illness and spiritual oppression. And the Holy Spirit is a real person who we can welcome into our life and feel his guidance through every step in every day.
But one fundamental truth I realized I stumble at: that God loves me. He LOVES ME!!! And I think a lot of christians have a hard time believing it. Not really accepting this truth can make us frustrated or we fall into legalism. I also just realized...if we don't believe this, we are calling God a liar. It's like saying that Jesus's death on the cross had other motives than: "God so LOVED the world that he gave his only begotten Son..." Somehow crazy to state this and yet, if i'm honest with myself: i'm guilty of unbelief in this area.
But what do we expect to fuel us in our walk with God? How do we expect to love others as Christ loved us if we do not daily believe again that God's love is overflowing for us and that it never fails? That it is unconditional? And if we think of it....according to 1. Corinthians 13 it will be the only thing that counts in the end. I can say of myself, I am absolutely uncapable of loving unconditionally without God's love. I'm unable to look beyond the person before me and see that we are not fighting against flesh and blood, but against spiritual beings (Eph 6:12). And I really become a selfish, self-righteous person.
So people....take God for his Word...he LOVES YOU!!! Tank up on it and pass this love around. It's world changing!
Love ya peeps
