The Bible tells us that even before we were created, God loved us. He sent His only, precious baby son to die on the cross for our sins, so that we could always live a life close to him. Because God wants us close! He wants to be a part of everything we do, and nothing brings Him more joy than when His children come to Him.
Reading our Bibles, praying, spending time with other people who love Jesus, learning about Jesus from church or family or friends, these are all very helpful ways to learn more about God’s love for us.
One special way to communicate love to God is to write Him a love letter. We can read His love letter to us, the Bible, anytime. Taking time to write down what He has done in our lives and how much we love Him is a great way to grow closer to Him! King David did this, only his letters were meant to be songs, and if you want an example, check out the book of Psalms in the Bible!
Psalm 136:1 “Praise the Lord! He is good. God’s love never fails.”
God loves you so much! How do you know He loves you?
