John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
God loves you and me today, and if we truly realized how much it would probably break our hearts and fill our eyes with tears.
You can’t keep God from loving you, but you don’t have to receive God’s love! Let me give you an example: You walk outside this morning and the sun is shining. You can’t keep the sun from shining, but you can put an umbrella up and keep it from shining on you!
There are two umbrellas we can put up to keep from receiving God’s love. 1. The Umbrella of Resistance to His Will! It is God’s will that no one perish and go to hell, but people are dying and going there everyday. They have said no to the one who died for them, and because of that they’ve refused to receive His love. 2. The Umbrella of Sin. Sin separates us from God. Sin keeps us from receiving His love and it breaks all communication with Him!
If you have your umbrella up, take it down so that you can receive the love God has intended for you!
