“In this act we see what real love is: it is not our love for God but his love for us when he sent his begotten Son to become an atoning sacrifice for our sins.” 1 John 4:10
Real love always wants to stand in your place and compassionately bear what you were supposed to bear. The Only Person on the entirety of Heaven and earth, who took our place and bore our shame is Jesus. He broke the power, sin had on us when He died. His resurrection, misted away death to its place and displayed infinitely abundant life.
You mean everything to Him! Indeed, His acceptance towards you is unconditional. He knows fully well that you and I can never love Him back the way He did. And, He doesn’t expect or long for it from us. All He would yearn for, is you to unceasingly RECEIVE His undeceivable and satisfying love.
When we keep on receiving His love for us, we are open to a realm where our importance is irreplaceable or inexhaustible. Comparison, then has no room. Envy, jealousy or insecurities cannot have a say. A heart that is receptive to His love daily, will be able to love Him and obey Him in every manner. The more we grasp God’s love for us, the more our expressions (talks, walks, thoughts and desires) become flawless. That’s when we are rising into being perfected.
Our presentation and perception towards anyone is marked with the seal of Love, when we are drinking from the well of His Heart.
