Do You Believe You Are Loved?

Written by
Do You Believe You Are Loved?

Longing. Emptiness. Anxiousness. Thwarted emotional and spiritual development.

Some combination of these is likely if you do not believe you are loved. Psychologists know it. Therapists know it. Pastors know it.  Most importantly, you know this to be true. Those who are unloved struggle and suffer. Those who believe they are unloved by God struggle and suffer chronically, profoundly.

Enter the Pursuing God.

“I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” – God (Jeremiah 31.3)

“You did not choose me, but I chose you…” – Jesus (John 15.16)

“I stand at the door and knock…” – Jesus (Revelation 3.20)

Enter, you, the pursued person into a Loving Relationship with the God of the universe and the God of the cross.

Satisfaction. Fulfillment. Assurance. Maturing emotional and spiritual development!

Multiple combinations of these are the fruits of those who accept the Loving Relationship God the Father initiates through His Son, Jesus as enabled by the Holy Spirit!

This is the Good News at the center of our worship and Bible study this weekend! It’s really powerful stuff!

But wait – there’s more! J

This Sunday:

We’re welcoming new members to the vision and mission the Lord has given us!

We’re upgrading 11:00 AM Fellowship time to BRUNCH! Come prepared to enjoy eggs and such for a $5/person donation!

We’re having the blessing of the quilts – hundreds of “woman-hours” will be appreciated and sent out to global destinations!  

Oh- and by the way – the main point, you are loved.

Believe it!
