Does God Love you, or Are you Reading Other People’s Mail?
We can’t say: I know that God is in love with me. We can’t say: I know that God is in love with you. We need to ask: are you in the new covenant yet? Are you born again yet? Have you been justified yet?
Are you reading other people’s mail? How do you know if God loves you?
Surely we know that God will not start loving a person. Either God already loves a person or not. Surely God will not start loving a person conditioned on that person doing something or accepting something.
We do love each other that way, and we should. Choosing a husband is all about being a “respector of persons”. But God does not love a person based on a regard for what that person has done or will do.
How then do you know if you are one of the ones God loves and for whom Christ died? Do you believe the gospel? Do you know what the gospel is?
