"The Width of God's Love"
“And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to be understood fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Ephesians 3: 18 & 19 NLT
Is God’s love limited? Of course not! God’s love extends across the entire world and includes everyone He created. Psalm 145: 17 tells us, “The Lord is righteous in all His ways and loving toward all He made.”
God never made a person that He didn’t love. He made you and He loves you. Just remember, God doesn’t make junk! He loves you unconditionally. He loves you, very much.
Everybody matters to God. Jesus showed us that. He loved the unlovable and those who are unlovely.
Do you want to know the secret to self-esteem? Here it is: if you want confidence, then understand how much you matter to God. If God loves you who cares what anybody else thinks?
Because God loves you, there’s no need to prove your self-worth. We don’t have to wear a certain kind of clothes with labels on them to make us feel good or to prop up our egos. We don’t need status symbols because we have a God symbol, the waters of baptism poured over our heads to make us His children.
Peace in the Lord,
