jesus loves you
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” – John 3:16-17
Why did Jesus die for you?
Is it because you are so awesome at stuff? Is it because you are better than other people?
It’s because He loves you. It’s that simple. John 3 16-17 is Jesus speaking. He’s explaining to Nicodemus who He was and why He came. He later, by His Spirit, inspired John to write this for us. Jesus wants you to know why He came. It was to save you and everyone else. He wanted you to know why He saved you. It is because He loves you. It’s a simple truth, but one that changes everything.
What do you need to do to be saved?
Do you need to do awesome stuff? Do you need to stop doing so many bad things?
Just believe in Jesus. It’s that simple. Jesus saves you because He wants to…because He loves you. You can’t earn it.
What you can do, however, is rest in His love. You can rest from striving to earn His love by your good deeds. He already loves you and loves you regardless. You can rest from wondering if your good enough. He loves you. You can rest is His words of love, grace, and truth.
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:29-30
Thank You for loving me. Thank You for giving me rest.
In Christ’s Service,
