We love because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19
Our Father loved us first. We don't have to earn it. We don't have to deserve it. We don't even have to want it. He loves us anyway. He loves us at our best AND when we're a hot mess. He loves us whether we're on fire for Him or angry with Him or running away from Him. He just loves us.
God loves us SO much that He gave His only Son for us. That will never stop blowing my mind! My frequent prayer is that He gives me a pure heart, teaches me to be more like Jesus and uses me to show His love for others.
