I was watching a TV show yesterday and one of the characters said something to the effect of “Jesus loves you.” I’ve heard this phrase a million times: “Jesus loves me,” “Jesus loves us,” “Jesus loves you,” etc. I’ve also heard all variations of “God loves us.” But for some reason, it didn’t really hit me until that moment that many people go through life feeling this monumental love; everyday, they feel God’s love and/or Jesus’ love. I believe in God in an abstract, distant way, at least I think I do, but I’ve never actually thought that God loves me or cares much about me specifically. I don’t mean to say that I feel I’m undeserving of God’s love. What I mean to say is that I’ve never thought to wonder if God loves me or not.
