Jesus loves me, this I KNOW!
There I was, 25, with a brand new baby, a thriving career and not feeling real good about “me”.
I remember like yesterday my mom saying to me, ”you need some self- esteem.”
I thought to myself, “Where do I get that from?”
Some 25 years later, I know the answer: Finding my identity “In Christ.”
As I counsel and coach people, I see more and more that a persons self worth is directly connected to how much they feel loved by God and others; especially significant people in their lives.
God is a God of order and He gives us simple instructions. (Matthew 22:38)
#1 Love Him first
#2 Love others, as you love yourself.
So, how do I love others, if I don’t love myself very much? That measure, is what I potentially have to give or love them with.
God actually gives us the love to love with. But to believe and receive that love, we must get to know Him. In that relationship, we gain understanding of who we are in Him and receive the love for ourselves and others.
….And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us. Romans 5:5 ESV
I want to know you more. Give me an understanding of how much you love me. Help me to love others, like you love me. Amen.
