YOU STILL AREN’T GOOD ENOUGH FOR GOD’S LOVE

YOU STILL AREN’T GOOD ENOUGH FOR GOD’S LOVE

The love of God does not find, but creates, that which is pleasing to it” (Luther’s Works 31:57). God loves you for no good reason … except His goodness. Though you may be tempted to work to improve and be more liked or loved, God doesn’t wait for your improvement. He doesn’t even require it. He loves you. His love is what changes you from sinner to saint. His love sent Jesus to die and rise for you. His love gives you salvation in Christ freely. His love caused Holy Scripture to be written so that you might hear and believe in His love. His love washed you in Baptism. His love feeds you in the Lord’s Supper. His love makes you lovable. He loves you freely and fully. No strings attached.
