"This is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. – 1 John 4:10 (NIV)
Thoughts: John does make a good point. It's easy for children of God who realize the magnitude of His presence and spirit to feel an overwhelming amount of love for Him. God is everything. But I often see people struggle with accepting/embracing/receiving the other side of the same coin: That God loves them back. It seems like too much grace to bear that the being that created all this life would love each individual person as much if not more than Himself. And to give as much as He has and continue to share His life in patience with people who constantly mess theirs up is the most remarkable gift people could ever receive in this life.
