We were created to be in communion with God. To rest in His love every single day and be completely at peace, knowing that our every need would be taken care of by Him.

But when faced with temptation, man chose to sin. We chose to believe the lie that God was not completely good. Believing that God was withholding good things from us, we reached out and ate fruit from a tree that God had commanded us not to eat from for our own good. In doing so, a gulf between God and man was created.

Do you think God delighted in banishing us from the Garden of Eden? By no means. It must have broken His heart to see His Creation turn away from Him and have to live separated from Him.

But the love God has for us is relentless. It never gives up. No matter how many times we turn away, God will always chase after our hearts. He values us just that much!

He values us so much that He sent His own Son to pay the price for our sins.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His one and only son. That whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

God withheld absolutely nothing in His pursuit to make us His own again. Not even His own life.

And because of that, there are no grounds to say that God does not love us. He loves us so much that we can’t even comprehend it!
