God's Love (on a napkin!)

Children approach their parents with questions all the time.
So, why do some insist that we aren’t allowed to question God?
Certainly, if you weren’t allowed to question your own parents while growing up,
you may view God as being unapproachable.
But just because you perceive
(or have been taught to believe)
He is unapproachable does not make it so.
God is very, 100%, approachable.
He says, “Come to Me.”
Never, has His intention been for us to be “separated” from Him.
Jesus lived the example of relationship with Him
so that we could SEE that He desires relationship
 with each and every one of us.
 And contrary to popular “teaching”,
 we don’t have to “become” anything
 in order to have relationship with Him.
Jesus didn’t “become” something
and then have relationship with God.
Jesus came here, as a man –
 in the same form as us
 – as the Son of God (as are we ALL)
and exemplified a real and loving relationship with
the REAL and LOVING Father!
There aren’t any great secrets.
 Jesus made it very clear and very SIMPLE.
The great question isn’t,
“Are you a Christian?”
 The questions is,
 “Do you believe?”
If we are “separated” from God,
 it is because we choose to be separated from Him.
God is here all of the time (omnipresent).
He knows what we are thinking,
all of the time (omniscient).
We cannot hide from Him.
 But we can choose to exclude Him.
He allows it.
Free will was given to us BY Him.
Because He loves us.
He is all-loving, all of the time.
And it is His very Love which draws us to Himself.
It isn’t our “job” to “get people saved”.
 Rather, for those of us who have realized
 the magnificence and DEPTH
of His GREAT and MIGHTY Love,
it is our “job”
 to SHOUT it from the roof tops!
From the depth of His very being
 (which is INFINITE),
You are not wretched.
You are not a mistake.
 God doesn’t make mistakes.
You are LOVED!
And if you want to “feel” this Love;
 want it to be real to you,
all you “have” to do is tell Him so,
then allow His love to wash over you.
It (His love) has been yours all along.
You have never been separated from His love;
you’ve simply not been experiencing His love (consciously)
because you have either not allowed it,
 have been told you are not worthy of it,
 or have been told you have to “become” something
 in order to experience it.
Embrace His LOVE now!
And the natural result will be your own heart
 responding in Love
to Him!
God is so, so GOOD!
