“God loves You!” is foundational truth of the Christian faith. It is repeated so frequently among the faithful that it’s almost ingrained in our minds. “Jesus love me this I know, for the Bible tells me so,” is perhaps the first song that many Christians sing to their children. However, how do we really know that God loves us? If someone came to you and said, “Forget the Bible verses. Tell me why you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that God loves you.” How would you answer?
This was the question I posed at the Simple Church Conference this past weekend in Stanford, KY.
