Everybody on earth needs to be loved. Many are the shattered, battered lives in people who think they are too vile for God to love them. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8 NKJV). The greatest demonstration of God’s love to sinners was Jesus’ death on the cross. Everyone must also know that “whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him” (1 John 2:5 NKJV). “For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome” (1 John 5:3 NKJV). To every creature in “the world” Jesus said, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned (Mark 16:16 NKJV). Accept His love by moving toward Him.
