When I was young, my mother gave me a small statue of a little girl holding a heart. On the heart it said, "to know me is to love me".......I was probably only 8 years old at the time, but I never forgot that phrase. And I always (and still do) believe she picked that one out just for me because she believed it to be true.
That is what Jesus says to us, too! He says: "To know me is to Love me." You see, God is Love. To know Him is to know Love!
1 John 4:16 "God is Love"
Have you ever felt like God didn't love you? Perhaps you have experienced a time where you didn't even love yourself.......What can you do when that overwhelming feeling happens? What makes you feel so unloved? I believe many times when a woman gets to a point of questioning the ability for others to love her, she has lost sight of who she is in Christ.
When we read the word of God, we put his words (his conversation) into our heart. Have you ever heard "You are who you hang around" ? God's word has a supernatural way of transforming the image we have of ourselves when we 'hang around' the Father.
2 Corinthians 3:18
You +1'd this publicly. Undo
And so we are transfigured much like the Messiah, our lives gradually becoming brighter and more beautiful as God enters our lives and we become like him.
If you are experiencing a time in your life where you seem to be asking: "Where is the Love...?" check who you are hanging out with. Is Christ still the center of your focus?
The unconditional love that Our Father has for us is simply that! It's unconditional!
In the bible it says that : Nothing can separate us from the Love of Christ.
When we are reminded of who we are in Christ (by reading what God says about us) we begin to see ourselves as he sees us. Our walk becomes a new walk; our talk becomes a new talk. We attract the Love because we learn again to Love as Christ loves Us. Boldly we can begin again to confidently say:
" To Know me is to Love Me."
