Chapter 3: When You Believe in God but Aren’t Sure He Loves you

This chapter deals with a problem that a lot of us go through at times. We all know Jesus loves everyone, but we often think that Jesus loves everyone else more than us. How can He love me and use me because of my sins? If we look at this list found from Bible Basics we see a lot of God’s chosen people problems of their own.

Noah was a drunk

Abraham was too old

Isaac was a daydreamer

Jacob was a liar

Leah was ugly

Joseph was abused

Moses had a stuttering problem

Gideon was afraid

Samson had long hair and was a womanizer

Rahab was a prostitute

Jeremiah and Timothy were too young

David had an affair and was a murderer

Elijah was suicidal

Isaiah preached naked

Jonah ran from God

Naomi was a widow

Job went bankrupt

Peter denied Christ

The Disciples fell asleep while praying

Martha worried about everything

The Samaritan woman was divorced, more than once

Zaccheus was too small

Paul was too religious (and use to persecute the church)

Timothy had an ulcer…

Lazarus was dead!

The point I am making is we all have our sins and problems, but that doesn’t make God love us anyless. As Pastor Craig says in his book

Love is not something God does. It is who God is. And because of who he is, god loves you . Period!

God is love, so no matter what He is going to love us. Paul also struggled with this issue

1 Corinthians 15:9

For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.

We as people may have a tendency to look down upon ourselves, but we must remember no matter how bad you think you are, no matter how hard things get, God still loves you unconditionally.
