God loves us because infinite and perfect love, greater than any love that we can imagine. Our human ability to love is finite and limited, and thus we have a tendency to put limitations on love itself. We think it makes sense to БearnБ someoneБs love or look for the reasons why another person loves us. But for God there is no earning of love GodБs love is an absolutely free gift of GodБs very self to us. For God there are no reasons for love God loves us because God is love itself. Amazing, isnБt it? This all-surpassing love that God has for us calls forth a response in us, as God invites us to share in the love that is GodБs very self:
БBeloved, let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.
Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. GodБs love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins. Beloved, since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another. Б (1 John 4:7-12) I\’m sure we all have thought about this question at one time or another. And our sinful human minds cannot comprehend God\’s love for us, as the song goes Amazing love how can it be that Thou my God shouldest die for me. why God loves us, but it tells us that God is love.
The fact that the God of this universe loves and cares for the rebellious human race is probably the greatest mystery of all time. Not only did He create us, But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
We may not be able to explain or comprehend why the Lord loves us, but we can believe it! There\’s another song that says, I can\’t explain or even understand why you gave your life to save sinful man, but I know it\’s true because I see it in myself: Your love endures forever! ( Your Love Endures by Third Day) Though it may be difficult to grasp, it\’s easy to accept: God showed how much he loved us by sending his only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love. It is not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.
