You Are Loved

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31-32 King James Version

Many times during my teenage years, I was told that I was no good. I was also told that I was fat, stupid and ugly and didn’t have any right to live. After hearing these things for so many years, I began to believe them. I have received a lot of emails through the years from people who are heartbroken because these things were also said to them.

One person told me “I believe that I’m stupid and will never amount to anything because I have been told that by so many people.” If someone has told you that you are stupid, ugly or fat and that you don’t have a right to be happy or loved, I submit to you on the authority of the Word of God that you do have a right to be happy and loved.

Don’t listen to satan because he is a liar. The truth is that you are loved by our precious Saviour. He loves you so much that He died for you. What a comfort it is to our weary battle scarred hearts to know that we are loved by the Master Himself! If you are hurting today, allow Jesus to comfort you as only He can. If you will listen with your spiritual ears, you will hear Him say to you over and over “I love you.”

What a privilege it is to be loved by the Saviour of the world. We know that He loves us because He proved His love for us when He died for us. The question we need to ask ourselves is “Do I love Jesus? If I do love Him, what am I doing to prove to Him that I love Him?” Remember, the level of our service to Jesus depends on our level of love for Him.
