When someone loves you, how does it make you feel? Think about it for a moment. Do you feel warm inside, like everything is going to be ok? Love really is the most important thing in life. Imagine this to prove it: if you had to choose between going hungry for a day or having your best friend tell you, “I hate you; I never want to see you again,” which would you choose? If you chose the love of your best friend over food, it shows just how important love really is. Life really isn’t worth living without it.
But the problem is that a lot of people don’t really feel loved. Have you ever felt, if just for a moment, that nobody cares about you? It’s horrible. The best thing to do to feel truly loved is to find the source of love. For example, if you were dying of thirst, you should find the source of water — like a faucet or spring. God is the source of love. The Bible says, “God is love” (1 John 4:16). Close your eyes and imagine God with the biggest heart of anyone you’ve ever met — just filled with love. That’s how He feels about you. He loves you more than you can ever begin to understand and even sacrificed His own Son Jesus to prove it.
You can receive His love today by asking Jesus to come into your life.
