While I was watching Once upon a Time, this conversation reminded me of something:
Rumplestiltskin: After everything you’ve learned about me, after everything I’ve done. Why haven’t you given up on me?
Belle: I learned a long time ago that when you find something that it’s worth fighting for, you never give up.
At some point in our life, maybe we asked questions like this to God:
People: After all the sins I’ve done, why did you still accept me?
GOD: Because I love you
Yes, you read it right. God will accept you no matter how bad things you’ve done in the past and no matter how shameful it is. God is a forgiving and loving father. He always look at you as a person worth fighting for. That is what He did on the cross. God looks at you as valuable and precious which enables HIM to sacrifice His own son for you.
John 3:16 says For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
If He really thinks that you’re unworthy, maybe God didn’t send His only son for the people to be saved. If He really gave up on you, maybe the cross will not exist. But He did it for only one reason- GOD LOVES YOU.
His love never gives up on you…
1 Corinthians 13:7
Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.
