Let God Love You

God's love will never be forced upon you. His love pursues you and invites you to respond, but there is no coercion on his part. Love must always be received. It can be refused. Let God love you.

Have you experienced the love of God? It's one thing to hear the songs and sermons about God's love, yet another thing to actually let God love you. It's possible to be a very religious person without knowing God's love in a personal way.

Someone may ask, "How can I really experience God's love?" God's love comes to us through his Son. Jesus came into this world to reveal God's love for all people. Look at Christ crucified. He proved God's love for us, when he died on the cross to take away all of our sins. With outstretched arms and crucified hands, he loves us that much.

Only the Holy Spirit can make God's love in Christ real to us. His love changes our hearts to trust him and love him. His love works through us to love others. Let God love you. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love (Romans 5:5 NLT). Experience God's love today. Trust his love for you everyday. Ask God the Father to fill you with his love in the name of Jesus Christ.
