Understanding that God loves you is an important part of becoming a Christian. If you believe that God is mad at you for your faults or weaknesses (we all have them! 🙂 ), it can inhibit you from seeking God. But the truth is, God does love you as you are right now. He is ready to come into your life. He doesn’t force anyone to believe in Him, but He welcomes everyone to believe in Him.
Isaiah Chapter 16, verse 5, it is written:
In love a throne will be established… [God’s love is unmatched. No human being can love you like God does. He loves you completely and unconditionally. He stills sees the good in you even when you do wrong.]
in faithfulness a Man (Jesus) will sit on it… [God is faithful. He does what He says He will do. He won’t withdraw His love from us. He won’t leave us to depend only on ourselves to get through trouble. Believe in Him, don’t waver! God will bring good from the bad things that happen in your life, and He will bless you, you can count on that!]
One from the house of David… [King David, who wrote most of the Psalms, was the King of Israel and was in the lineage of Jesus.]
One Who in judging seeks justice… [God is just. He understands all actions, motivations, thoughts and desires. Nothing is hidden from Him, so He is the only qualified judge of the people.]
and speeds the cause of righteousness… [God is constantly moving to speed the cause of righteousness. He promotes righteousness by forgiving us and allowing us to get a fresh start; He has mercy on us, and that helps us to have mercy on others; When we believe in Him, He gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit to propel us to help and serve other people.]
The throne of God was established in love from the very beginning. God wants you to know and believe that He loves you. God is not asking you to complete a list of self-improvement projects before He’ll start loving you. He loves the real you, as you are now. He sees the good in you, and He understands what you do and why you do it. This is what He asks–that you believe in Him as the One True God, that you believe that your sins are forgiven by the sacrifice of His Son Jesus on the cross, and that you ask Him for forgiveness for your sins and invite him into your life. Don’t put off starting to believe in God–He already loves you, and He is ready to receive you today!
