When many of us were kids, we used to sing, “Nobody loves me, everybody hates me, I’m going to eat worms!” How eating worms would help, I never could figure out, but if you’re feeling unloved, today’s devotional will help. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
1 John 4:16
1 John 4:16 English Standard Version (ESV)
16 So we have come to know and to believe the love that God has for us. God is love, and whoever abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him.
I John 4:16
“Everything that God does to his people is all love, — sometimes, the love is a little disguised, but the love is always there. If he caresses, it is love. If he chastens, it is love. If he smiles, it is love. If he frowns, it is love; for God is love, and to his people nothing else but love, — infinite, boundless, eternal, immeasurable, inexhaustible, unchangeable, perpetual love. Oh, the Lord has indeed loved his people, and he does love them, and he will love them, and must love them forever and forever! Let their hearts be glad in this fact.”
[Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle Pulpit XLIII, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1897), p. 415]
