Another Kind of Love

Hey peeps! What's today's topic? LOVE! I love love to be quite honest. I'm not into that mushy, gushy, kissy couple love. What I'm talking about is the love of God. By this I mean, I mean you loving Him, and Him loving you. I know that as teenagers with all our crazy teenager hormones, you really want a relationship with a person, like having a boyfriend or girlfriend. Today it seems like people think they NEED a boyfriend or a girlfriend. I'm here to give you  reality check and tell you that you are wrong if you think that. The only kind of relationship and love you NEED, besides your parents, is God's love. His love is a special kind of love. It's the kind of love where He will never love you any less or stop loving you because of something you did. No matter how bad you screw up or mess up He will always love you. If you fight with a boyfriend or girlfriend their feelings may change, and the same about you. If you get upset with your significant other and ignore them, it could drastically change your relationship. It's a whole different story with God. If you go astray and ignore Him for weeks, months, or even years, you can go back to Him at anytime and none of His love for you will have changed or lessened. His love for you is perfect in every way. He loves you at your lowest and at your highest. Can you honestly say that about any other relationship you have? If God didn't love us, why would He send his only Son to us to die on the cross and save us from our sins. Jesus was God's only truly perfect child. Would you send your child, perfect or not, to die to make up for the wrong doings of another person or people? This just proves how much God loves us. Ephesians 2:4-5 has backed this up. It says "But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved". So the next time you think about how much you NEED a boyfriend or girlfriend, think about the love you are already getting from God, and that nothing can ever match that love.
