I Love You. Do You Love Me? Yes or No?

Description

Jesus demonstrated His love for you on the cross. How will you demonstrate your love for Him today?

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Have you ever been in love? Have you ever felt pursued?

I remember the very first time I received a note from a boy. I was in elementary school. The note was a folded piece of notebook paper with four lines written on it.

“I love you.  Do you love me?  Yes or no?  Circle one.”

I was in the fourth grade and someone was expressing his love for me. I felt special. I felt chosen. Granted, the romance only lasted for three weeks, but in the fourth grade, three weeks feels like a lifetime.

We all want to feel special and chosen.  Many people go through their entire life trying to be or do something they aren’t just to get noticed by another.  In the long run their actions usually lead to heartache.

In John 15:16, Jesus tells us we didn’t choose Him, but He chose us.  We didn’t have to be or do anything to get His attention or convince Him to choose us.  He simply did.  In fact, Romans 5:8 says,

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

While we were at our absolute worst, Christ still loved us enough to give up His very life.

You never have to go through life feeling like you are unwanted or unloved.

No matter what anyone else in this world tells you, you matter to God.

Jesus Christ loves you and He chose you.  He demonstrated His love for you by setting aside His position in heaven and stepping into this world to die on the cross so He would never have to be separated from you.

Love…true love, is more than just words.

Jesus demonstrated His love for you on the cross.  How will you demonstrate your love for Him today?
