As I have loved you
“As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.”
He loves you. Believe it! He knows you completely: all your strengths and weaknesses, all your moments of grace and all your moments of sin and he loves you. He has given his life for you. He loves you just as you are and just where you are and he will always love you. God’s love is faithful, unlimited and unconditional.
When you begin to believe in his love, to know yourself as loved, then you will discover, recognize and accept the gift of your own being. This recognition will enable you to begin to love others as he has loved you. Where necessary, God’s love will free you to forgive yourself and others so that you can truly give your life in service of others.
