“I have given them the glory You gave Me – the glorious unity of being one, as We are – I in them and You in Me, all being perfected into one – so that the world will know You sent Me and will understand that You love them as much as You love Me” John 17:22-23
WOW when I read this passage from Jesus to God the Father, I can’ t help but leap from in excitement when I realize that God loves me and you as much as He loves His only begotten Son! What is more, He loves us unconditionally. That means He loves us not because we are good, or worthy of His love, but simply because of who He is.
Of course, the miracle of it all is that when Jesus, who is the incarnation of God’s love, comes to live within us when we accept Him as our Lord and Savior , that same supernatural love becomes operative within us, enabling us to love others supernaturally as well. Let this truth dominate your thinking today. It will lift you from the pit and set your foot upon the rock so you can walk in victory. God loves you same as Jesus. Don’t forget that.
