Let God Love You Instead

By Princess Arira

Growing up as a little child, I thought I have to love God more and have more passion for God, I tried but I failed woefully. But what is the true definition of love? Let the Bible define it for us. ” This is love ” not that we loved God, but He loved us. Yes, it is not about our love for Him, but His love for us. But the bible says you should love God with all your heart, soul and strength? Yes, that is true according to the law, and even Jesus taught that as the great commandment when He walked on earth. But that was before He died on the cross.
At the cross, Christ became the very fulfilment of the 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 grace. And grace tells us that God loves us and not that we love Him. Yet, we will love Him when we see how much He loves us, the bible says that while we were still sinners Christ dies for us, that’s how much He loves us.
God has seen you trying your best to love Him. And because He loves you, He wants you to sit down and be still, and let Him love you instead. He wants to love you with all that He is and all that He has. He loves you unconditionally regardless of who you are and what you have done because His love is not dependent on you but on Himself. He will never stop loving you.
So let God love you today. Don’t worry about loving Him. The more of His love you receive, the more you fall in love with Him.
