Let God Love U Instead

1 John 4:10  -  In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son 2b the propitiation for our sins.

"You have 2 love God more! You must have more passion for God!” You have probably heard this type of preaching and may have even tried your best 2 love God, only 2 fail miserably. But what is the true definition of love? Let the Bible define it for us: “… this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us…” Yes, it is not about our love for Him, but His love for us!

“Pastor Prince, the Bible says that u must love God with all your heart, soul and strength!”

Yes, that is true according 2 the law (Deuteronomy 6:5), and even Jesus taught that as the great commandment when He walked on earth. (Matthew 22:37) But that was before He died on the cross. At the cross, He became the very fulfillment of this law for us when He loved us with all His heart, soul and strength, by laying down His body and life on the cross for us.

Today, we are no longer under the law but under grace. And grace tells us that God loves us, not that we love God. Yet, we will love Him when we see how much He loves us. The Bible says that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us! (Romans 5:8) That’s how much He loves us!

Beloved, God has seen u trying your best 2 love Him. And bcoz He loves u, He wants u 2 sit down and be still, and let Him love u instead. He wants 2 love u with all that He is and all that He has. He loves u unconditionally regardless of who u are or what u have done bcoz His love is not dependent on u but on Himself. He will never stop loving u.

So let God love u today. Don’t worry about loving Him. The more of His love u receive, the more u will fall in love with Him!
