“Nothing is certain but death and taxes.” AND the love of Jesus!
Welcome to Wednesday, P31 OBS friends! Today’s book reading is entitled “Love Is Certain,” and as you work through it, you will see proof that Jesus is who He says He is, which means His love for us is, indeed, certain.
Google defines certain as “known for sure; established without doubt.” And that is just what His love is. That truth holds some great implications for us, because THAT means …
Even if I have a bad day, He will still love me.
Even if I mess it up yet again, He will still love me.
Even if I lose my job, He will still love me.
Even if I go broke, He will still love me.
Even if life doesn’t turn out the way I thought it would, He will still love me.
Even if my worst nightmare becomes my reality, He will still love me.
Even if my family and friends walk away and everyone in this world turns against me, He never will because He will still love me. Always!
Because you see, as a child of God, there is NOTHING I can do to make Him love me less, just as there’s nothing I can do to make Him love me more. His love is secure, definite and forever!
As our Verse of the Week reminds us:
“Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” 1 John 5:12
If you have asked Jesus to be your Savior, you, too, can rest in knowing that you forever have life and you forever have love — HIS love. And that love is known for sure and without doubt. Let that be an anchor to your soul. No matter how unsure anything else in your life may be, His love isn’t and never will be. YOU. ARE. LOVED!
