Loving God

Posted in uncategorized by Nathan Creitz on June 21, 2007

I wish I could love God more than He loves me because He deserves it and I don’t. He deserves more love, yet receives less. I deserve less love, but I get more. Rather, God deserves limitless love and He gets very little, I deserve no love, but God gives me His with no limits. That’s what makes Him God. He can give unconditionally and without end and I cannot.

He is God because I don’t deserve His love but He gives it anyway. I am not God because He does deserve my love but I can’t give it unconditionally. He loves when we deserve His wrath and we hate in the midst of His love. I need His love, He wants my love.
