He Loves You That Much

 By: Jenifer Metzger

Today's Bible reading has us in Hosea 11. In this chapter we see how deeply God loves Israel.

When Israel was a child, I loved him,
and out of Egypt I called My Son.
Hosea 11:1

We also see how Israel has turned away from God. They are living in evil with hearts full of sin. Through all of their evil and sin, God still loves them so very much. But, He loves them too much to let them keep on living in sin.

He loves you that much #Godslove #inspiration #encouragement #Godlovesyou

As parents, we love our children. They can disrespect us or disobey us and it breaks our heart and may even stir some anger, yet we still love them. They may turn from God and do things we know will lead them down a path of destruction, yet we still love them. Our love never wanes, never fades. We love them too much to let them keep living like that. We want want them to obey, be respectful, and live for God. But love is always there.

God doesn't wait for us to become perfect, or even good. We can go to Him now, just as we are. He accepts us, sin and all. But He loves us too much to let us keep living in sin. He will begin to stir our heart and prompt us to rid ourselves of those things that cause us to sin. The Holy Spirit will work in us to clean up those areas that are displeasing to God.

No matter what sin or struggle you have been dealing with, God loves you. He loves you and accepts you right now, exactly the way you are. But remember, He will ask you to rid yourself of any and all sin. He loves you that much.

  1. Jenifer, I am so grateful that God loves each of us too much to leave us the way we are. He constantly molds and changes us, patiently and lovingly.
    My post today:

  2. God's love for me despite my sin melts my heart. And, good Father that He is, He works with me to bring me to repentance and change.

    I wrote this week about a Christian philosophy of "things": not being careless with them, but not esteeming them more highly than we ought:
