I know, most of us have a difficult time believing anyone could love us, but that is the message of Satan. He does not want you to know how precious you are in God's sight; he actually wants you to think God hates you. When I think of Satan, I think of a being who is exactly the opposite of God: he is a liar, a thief, a murder - basically, he is a "hater!" SATAN HATES YOU! Sadly, because we all sin, the Bible says Satan is the "god of this world" (2 Cor. 4:4). Adam "sold out" for a bite of fruit!
God wants a relationship with you. He wants to be called "Father" by us as His adopted children. In fact, Jesus has "made the arrangements" so that you and I could become God's children. With His death, burial, and resurrection, He made it possible for us to leave the bondage of the Evil One by simply trusting in the Holy One: Jesus! If you don't believe me, read these verses:
". . . God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave Himself a ransom for all . . ." (1 Tim. 2:3-6).
"Look unto Me and be ye saved . . . for I am God . . ." (Isaiah 45:32).
"Let the wicked forsake his way. . . let him return unto the Lord, and He will have mercy upon him, for He will abundantly pardon" (Isaiah 55:7).
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16).
"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise. . . but is longsuffering (toward us), not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9).
GOD LOVES YOU! BY TRUSTING JESUS, YOU ARE LOVING HIM BACK!
