Have you ever loved someone so much without them ever loving you in return?
Have you ever loved someone so much it hurt?
Have you ever wondered what it would feel like for someone to love you as much or more than you yourself are capable of loving?
I John 4:19 says, We love God because He loved us FIRST. We are only capable of giving love, because we've already received the complete love of Jesus.
Being a Christian is about accepting God's love.
This new popular Christian worship song, "Jesus, I Do" speaks of the concept that Jesus is pursuing us, even if we're not pursuing Him. His divine plan for our life is for us to accept Him as the ultimate sacrifice. We get to trade in all of our superficial relationships in this world, for an everlasting relationship with someone who knows EXACTLY what it means to LOVE us, unconditionally.
No one. Not your mother, not your father, not your husband, not your wife, not your children, not your boyfriend or girlfriend in passing........can give the kind of love that casts out FEAR.
Have you ever felt afraid that your significant other would cheat on you or betray you? Have you dealt with insecurities that are rooted in a childhood of "feeling unloved?"
In I John 4:18, God tells us that there REALLY IS a perfect LOVE that CASTS out ALL of that FEAR, ANXIETY, WORRY, DRAMA, JEALOUSY and everything in-between. But most of the time we misinterpret and try to look for that perfect love in a human being. Or else we try to love someone else PERFECTLY and get disappointed really quickly, because they don't give us the same in return. JESUS is the only one who can offer you LOVE with no strings attached, casting out all fear, so that you don't have to wring your hands wondering if HE is going to "come home at night." Because Jesus said, in Matthew 28:20, "I am always with you, to the end of the ages."
Say "I do" to Jesus, and He will never divorce you. He won't force you to say "Jesus is the way." But He is waiting for you to accept His love. New popular Christian worship song.
