God’s Love
By Max Lucado
God is love.”  I John 4:16
The supreme surprise of God’s love?  It has nothing to do with you.  Others love you because of you, because your dimples dip when you smile or your rhetoric charms when you flirt.  Some people love you because of you.  Not God.  He loves you because he is he.  He loves you because he decides to.  Self-generated, uncaused, and spontaneous, his constant–level love depends on his choice to give it.  “The Lord did not set his affection on you and choose you because you were more numerous than other peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples.  But it was because the Lord loved you” (Deut. 7:7-8 NIV).
You don’t influence God’s love.  You can’t impact the treeness of a tree, the skyness of the sky, or the rockness of a rock.  Nor can you affect the love of God.
Isn't that a beautiful and AMAZING truth? I can't understand how someone can love me constantly, unconditionally, and without a change in degree. That is some seriously heavy stuff right there. It's heavy because I know I'm human. I know I mess up. I know I've probably hurt Him way more than I've ever cared to recognize. How terrible and low am I? He forgives me, though. When I call on His name, He always forgives, always hopes, always believes...
