Jesus Loves You Perfectly

God loves us because He is love, not because we are perfect.  We often overlook this fact in our Christian lives.  The result is our walks with Jesus end up as a roller coaster ride rather than filled with the peace God intends.  We are up on a mountaintop when we feel like we are serving God well.  This is quickly followed by a valley when we fall prey to temptation and fall short of our standards for ourselves.  Life as a disciple ends up being frustrating and unsatisfying.  It is filled with struggle, guilt and burdens.  Understanding the height and depths of God’s love liberates us from this pointless cycle.  God is Love.

God is perfect love expressed towards the ones that He calls His children.  Do we comprehend even a little bit of what this means for us?  Are we living in His grace filled love?  Here are 21 Wonderful Bible Verses to Remind Us today if we are struggling with His love.  They are like a warm hug from the Almighty!
