"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 (NIV)

God loves you so much. He loves you enough to give His Son for you, to watch His Son die for you, to put the sins of the world on His back for you. That is an indescribable love

Some days you may feel undeserving, blemished, bruised. But God doesn't see you that way. He sees how you haven't measured up, He sees the sin you carry and commit, but more importantly, He sees forgiveness. He sees you as His son or daughter. He sees you as His creation, and there is nothing you can do to remove that beautiful image from His mind.

On your darkest days, remember that He is with you. Remember that He loves you. Remember that He will never forsake you.

Remember that His Son died for you, and all you need to do is repent and believe in Jesus and the forgiveness of sins. Then be cleansed, renewed, replace dark with light, and start again in His name.

**Let love lead**

GOD loves us very much. This is very certain.
The problem is, do we love him?
When we face challenges and persecutions, it's not that GOD is wicked and uncaring, He actually wants to test our love for Him.
Yes! We have christians that go to church, evangelize and teach the Word but when the wave of challenges hit them, they fall and trust me the fall is always a great one, why? Because they don't love GOD.

Funny enough, GOD'S love is also for better for worse, He didn't promise you that all things will be totally fine, He only promises that He will be with us and stand by us during those bad times.
Most of us only love GOD during the good times and during the bad times, we tag GOD as "wicked".

We should learn from faithful Job in the Bible who stood his ground when the storms of life came hitting (The book of Jo b).

Let's always have this mind in us that GOD doesn't deliberately let evil happen to us to torment us (only the Sinne s) but He tests us (I Corinthians 10:13).
And blessed are those that endure till the end, what a beautiful crown of life to receive! ( James 1:12).

For instance, a man married a lady while he was very rich and this lady confessed her undying love to him. He being doubtful of her love, pretended to have lost everything he owns his work, cars and the likes to prove this lady's love. But as expected, she ran away because she couldn't copy without the luxury. It's so obvious that this lady does not love the man but his money.

Let's be careful, most of us claim to love GOD but we only love His "gifts". And when He decides to test us let's be spiritually and physically ready to stay strong.

**GOD'S baby**

A time can be so rosy for a man and at5 some point dark days can set in but in everything the bible admonishes us to give thanks with hope in our hearths for God to come through. Jeremiah 31:3 The Lord hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee. John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. Jesus paid the price for every day of our life on earth and look out for a life with us in eternity (heaven) and at that on the cross He said "it is finished' that holds that even in our lowliest state He still loves us.
Apostle Paul was formally a persecutor of the Christians but because Jesus paid the price for every man by his death and resurrection, in his mercy he found Apostle Paul and from Apostle Paul's epistle in the New Testament, it is clear that mercy and grace was at work by the power of the Holy Spirit. Apostle Paul was out to destroy the believers but God encountered him in his way to Damascus and that gave birth to his conversion which made him a vessel unto honor in the hands of the Lord. God is love personified and that made him respond in John 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. Almost immediately all the accusers walked away leaving the woman with Jesus and in verse 11 Jesus out of his love for man said "neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.' Jesus isn't man and he will never change from doing as it is written in the bible he will not forsake his own creation. The Lord will not fail to chastise man whenever man goes astray but He does it in love such that ,an wouldn't feel any form of condemnation rather he will be called to repentance from that which made him err.

All have sinned and come short of the glory of the Lord but God in his mercy forgives the transgression of man and still has the best intention toward mankind for a glorious life on earth with a hopeful extension with Him in heaven. No matter how big you feel your sin is, don't wallow in it because that will result in self condemnation but look to Jesus for mercy being the author and finisher of your faith. The bible says we should come boldly to the throne of grace that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need. The lowly state of a person should be the end of the world rather it should be a time for man to realize wrong done and retrace his steps back to God because the Lords arm is always open for a warm embrace to any that runs to him for mercy.

**Life is a race but with God's element of grace it'll be worth while to explore His goodness. **
