And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God Is Love, and he who abides in love
abides in God, and God in him. We love Him because He first loved us.
1 John 4:16, 19 NKJV
God Is Love
I WANT YOU TO EXPERIENCE the riches of your salvation: the Joy of being loved constantly and perfectly. You make a practice of judging yourself, based on how you look or behave or feel. If you like what you see in the mirror, you feel a bit more worthy of My Love.
When things are going smoothly and your performance seems adequate, you find it easier to believe you are My beloved child. When you feel discouraged, you tend to look inward so you can correct whatever is wrong.
Instead of trying to “fix” yourself, fix your gaze on Me, the Lover of your soul. Rather that using your energy to judge yourself, redirect it to praising Me. Remember that I see you clothed in My Righteousness, radiant in My Perfect Love.
Ephesians 2:7-8 NLT
So God can point to us in all future ages as examples of the incredible wealth of his grace and kindness toward us, as shown in all he has done for us who are united with Christ Jesus. God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God.
Hebrews 3:1 NLT
And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are partners with those called to heaven, think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s messenger and High Priest.
Psalms 34:5 NLT
Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces.
