A Different Kind of Love

You are Loved!

“I love you.” The general meaning behind these three simple, yet powerful words is to take pleasure in, to hold dear or to cherish.  Unfortunately, in a world as imperfect as ours, words don’t always mirror actions. Used out of context “I Love You” can be used to control a person through manipulation, causing extreme hurt and pain to the one on the receiving end. However, on the flip side of that, used in the right context these words can bring life, healing, and restoration. With that said, Jesus says to you, “I Love You.” Not only has He spoken it in His Word, but He has proven it with His actions by dying on the cross for you. In addition to that, He desires to continue to show you the depths of His love by caring for you, protecting you, and blessing you with the assurance of His presence.  The love that Jesus has for you cannot be compared to the best displays of love shown in this world.  His love is bigger than ours, more powerful than ours and can withstand even the greatest of offenses—to describe it in a word, it’s supernatural.  Dare to experience the ultimate love relationship by accepting His gift of love today.

Moment of Reflection:

Have you been hurt by someone who claimed to have loved you but whose actions proved otherwise?  Take a moment and list the person/ and or write about the experience. Has this occurrence made it difficult for you to believe and accept the love that Jesus has for you? Please explain.

Take Action

  1. Ask the Lord to heal you of the past hurts you listed above. Ask Him to soften your heart so that you can receive His love for you, and so that you can in turn show it to others.
  2. Read John 3:16 – 17

Realize no matter what your past experiences of love have been, Jesus’ love for you is different. He loves you because He is love, and can do nothing else but that. He loves you when you are at your best, and He loves you when you are at your worst. Will you take steps today to discover His love for you?
