Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1 NIV
Love songs, we hear them everywhere. They are found in every genre of music from country western to rap and even contemporary Christian. One of the more familiar songs by the Beatles has a chorus which sounds like this, “All you need is love (dum, da, da, da dum). All you need is love (pause), love (pause), love is all you need.”
This chorus is true. We all need, want, and desire to be loved. Therefore, we look for love everywhere in things, activities, and people. And our love is fleeting. We may love one thing today but tomorrow not so much.
When God created us, He desired a loving, personal relationship with us and wanted all our love. (Genesis 1-2) After disobedience and evil came into the world, He continued to love us. And this time He gave His son, Jesus, to die for us and our disobedience so we could live with Him forever. (John 3:16) He gave Jesus’ life for ours all because He loves us. He wants us!
And every day we can experience this love. It appears through His presence in our life, the blessings He gives, and His strength as we struggle through life’s challenges. And the best thing about God’s love is that it is eternal. It lives forever. It is not like the wind ever moving but is steady and strong. We can be confident God loves us and it will not change.
So, here is a trustworthy statement: Jesus loves you!!
