God Loves You As Much as He Loves Jesus

"23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me." (John 17: 23)

Are you aware of this?

Do you believe this or not?

God the Father loves us as much as He loves His Son Jesus Christ.

Of course, we cannot understand let alone appreciate this love unless we understand that we have have received a new identity, that we have been adopted into a new family:

"15For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together." (Romans 8: 15-17)


"1Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not." (1 John 3: 1)


"Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world." (1 John 4: 17)

God loves you as much as Jesus, and He sees you in Christ Jesus. Spend less time looking at yourself, set your thoughts on Himself, Jesus Christ seated at the right hand of the Father (Colossians 3: 1-4)
