You Are Loved!

Human love is a very fragile thing; easily broken, easily withdrawn, easily withheld, easily lost. When love ceases to be received it can cause deep depression, anxiety, anger, loneliness, and a host of other emotions. It may even be so traumatic to the one feeling unloved that it leads to suicide.

If you are among the millions of people in this world that feel unloved, you need to know that you are loved by your Creator, Almighty Yahweh, whom most know as “God”.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 

You are part of the “world” that Yahweh loved. He allowed His only begotten Son to die for your sake so that you can receive everlasting life through faith in him.

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:9-10

Sin (breaking Yahweh’s laws) brings death upon mankind. Yahweh’s only begotten Son, Yeshua, took our sins upon himself and died in our place. So, not only does Yahweh love you, but His Son loves you as well.

Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13 

This is what Yeshua did for you. He laid down his life (died) for you. 

For when we were yet without strength, in due time Messiah died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commends His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:6-10 

If you have not received Messiah Yeshua as your Savior, then you have not yet been reconciled to your Creator. Your sins are still upon you and you are separated from Him.

But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid His face from you, that He will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue has muttered perverseness. None calls for justice, nor any pleads for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. Isaiah 59:2-4

. . . God was in Messiah, reconciling the world unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and has committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 2 Corinthians 5:19 

If you desire to be reconciled (restored to divine favor) with your Creator, then you need only confess your sins to Him and ask His Son Yeshua to come into your life and be your Master and Savior. Yeshua has already died for you. Now you must act and accept his sacrificial death as the atonement for your sins. Receive him into your heart and your sins will be forgiven. The cause of separation between you and your Creator, sin, will no longer be found in you. You will be made “at one” with your Creator.

Now then we are ambassadors for Messiah, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Messiah’s stead, be you reconciled to God. For he has made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:20-21 

Friend, I am an ambassador for Messiah. I come to you in his place, on his behalf, to beg of you to be reconciled to your Creator, Almighty Yahweh. Yeshua, the only sinless man that ever lived,  took your sins upon himself and died for you so that you could live forever reconciled to Yahweh. Receive him as your Savior that your sins may be forgiven. Receive the love Yahweh and His Son have for you.

But after that the kindness and love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit; Which He shed on us abundantly through Yeshua Messiah our Savior; That being justified by His grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.  Titus 3:4-7

Let the words above come true for you. The “love of God our Savior toward man” is manifested in His Son Yeshua. Yeshua is the ultimate expression of our Creator’s love toward us. Receive His love and be made an heir of eternal life.

Should you choose to accept the gift of salvation being offered to you, there will be certain expectations of you. When we are the recipients of such great love, it will result in certain actions in return.

Yeshua answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. John 14:23 

Receiving Yeshua as your Savior means you will obey him.

For the love of Messiah constrains us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again. 2 Corinthians 5:14-15

A disciple of Yeshua needs to die to self and live for him.

And walk in love, as Messiah also has loved us, and has given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor. Ephesians 5:2 

A disciple of Yeshua needs to love others just as he loved us. That kind of love is a sacrificial love whereby we esteem others as more important than ourselves and sacrifice our time, money, resources, etc., to meet the needs of others, especially of fellow believers in Messiah.

Hereby perceive we the love of Messiah, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 1 John 3:16 

Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another. 1 John 4:11 

A disciple of Yeshua should, above all, love Yahweh with all his heart, soul, mind and strength.

We love Him (Yahweh), because He first loved us. 1 John 4:19 

Such a love for our Creator will result in obeying Him.

For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments: and His commandments are not grievous. 1 John 5:3 

I hope you will fully understand and embrace the love that your Creator, Almighty Yahweh, and His Son Yeshua, have for you. You are not alone and you are not unloved. Accept their love and experience love as you never have before. The love of a man, woman or child cannot compare to the love of Yahweh or Yeshua.
