Living less loved

Most of our lives are spent living less loved.
When we worry that God will ask us for some horrible sacrifice, we live less loved.
When we indulge ourselves in sin, we live less loved.
When we give into anxiety in the crush of our circumstances, we live less loved.
When we try to earn God`s favor by our own efforts, we live less loved.
Even when we get caught up in religious obligations to make ourselves acceptable to him, we live less loved.
In the long run it doesn't matter whether rebellion or religion keeps you from a vibrant relationship with the Father; the result is still the same. He is cheated out of the relationship he wants with you, and you never come  to know how he feels about you.
Everything about you life hinges on the answer to one simple question: Do you know how loved you really are?
Isn't it about time you found out? (Wayne Jacobsen - He loves me!)

"And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,  and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. " (Ephesians 3:17-19)
