"Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so."

I well remember those words from a song we sang at summer Bible School when I was about ten or twelve year old. Yes, we know God loves us because the Bible tells us so.

Probably the most oft quoted and recognizable verse in all the Bible is John 3:16 which reads:

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have ever-lasting life."

But WHY does God love us and the world? Some think God loves for no reason at all, which makes no sense at all. God has reasons for all that He does, including loving humanity.

Aside from the fact that the Bible tells us that God loves us, God may have numerous reasons why He loves us. But there are two very profound reasons for God's love that are not openly stated to be reasons for His love, yet they are. However, few have ever comprehended these two reasons for God's love. There is something about the world and about you individually that are cause for God's love. Yet neither one of these reasons has anything to do with any contribution from us. Both reasons are out of God.  

There was no way God would fail to have Paul in His Family and in His Kingdom, and there is no way God will fail to have ALL HUMANITY in His Family and in His Kingdom, and that includes YOU -- the only one like you in the entirety of the universe!


I don't know if I agree with this article. But it does have some thoughts worth looking at.
