You Are Loved

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? …Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” ~ Romans 8:35, 37-39

You don’t have to be on the A team.
You don’t have to be on the B team.
You don’t have to have made the team.
You are loved.

You don’t have to belong to the right club.
You don’t have to go to the right school.
You don’t have to come from the right neighborhood.
You are loved.

“And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world… We love him, because he FIRST loved us.” ~ 1 John 4:14-17, 19

You don’t need a lot of money.
You don’t need a fancy car.
You don’t need a stylish wardrobe.
You are loved.

You don’t need to be highly educated.
You don’t need to be famous.
You don’t need to be a hero.
You are loved.

You don’t need to be up to date.
You don’t need to be sophisticated.
You don’t need to be well connected.
You are loved.

You can stumble and fall.
You can blow the deal.
You can strike out.
You are still loved.

You can fail to make it to the top.
You can miss the boat.
You can fall into a ditch.
You are still loved.

You can be overlooked.
You can be unappreciated.
You can be disrespected.
You are still loved.

You can be called worthless.
You can be called unimportant.
You can be called a loser.
That’s not what God calls you.
He says you are made in His image,
And that you are fearfully
And wonderfully made.
He loves you so much, He sent his only son, Jesus,
to die for you so you could be reconciled to Him.
