Step 1: For God so loved the world
Does God love me? The answer is in the Bible, His Word to us:
“I have loved you with an everlasting love.” — Jeremiah 31:3
God loves you, and He loves you with a love beyond understanding, because there is no human love comparable to divine love. He wants to forgive you. He wants to have a relationship with you.
“God is love.” — 1 John 4:16
It doesn’t make any difference how far you try to run from God. He loves you. His eye is on you. He sees you. God loves you, and the Bible says that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, from heaven to this earth for you. Christ came to this earth to pay for your sins on a cross. God has a plan for your life.
“‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord. ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future.’” — Jeremiah 29:11
God created you in His image, and you are important to God.
“Indeed the very hairs of your head are numbered.” — Luke 12:7
God knows who you are. He knows your name and everything about you. He cares for you.
