John 3:16

Phillip Yancey reminds us that we cannot do anything to influence God to love us more.  And, we cannot do anything to make God love us less.  God’s love is not based on how good or bad we are.  God’s love is based on the character of God.  So, receive it.  Quit trying to earn it or rebelling to prove you don’t need it.  Stop, and receive God’s love deep down in your bones.

Prayer Thought:  God, to receive your love at a deeper level, I have to let go.  Help me to trust you that much.
