God loves each of us completely. Now, what does that mean? It means that God loves every fiber of your being right down to your DNA. He put it together and placed all of your gifts and abilities in those strands of your building block molecules. So, when you are called to become an adopted child of His through your acceptance of Jesus as your Savior, you are supposed to give your complete life and love back to Him.
How can I give my life and my love to Him? The first act of love from yourself to Him is to accept Jesus as your Savior and learn about Him and His commandments in the Bible so we can be the best person that we can be. With the Holy Spirit’s help, we can live our lives daily trying to live according to those Ten Commandments. I can’t live my life according to and following those commandments without His Spirit living in my heart and neither can you! God desires our obedience more than anything.
Jesus, the Son of God, came to live here as a human being so He would know our weaknesses and our temptations. He also knows our fears and our feelings of rejection and He came to walk where we walk and be connected with us. While it is true that God knows these things too, Jesus needed to do this as part of the Trinity so that He could truly relate to and understand us with our physical limitations and our sorrows and our joys too.
A better way of understanding this would be the relationship between a dog that you have in your household. They are part of the family. You take care of their needs and love them as much as you can but you can’t relate to them on their level unless you were able to become one of them. Live your life as a dog even with their short life spans. Enjoy all of the things that they enjoy and feel and smell all of the things that they feel. This is a very simplistic way of looking at our relationship with God and Jesus but I know that all of the dog owners out there can relate to this.
God loves us far more deeply than we can imagine. Just as most owners of Dachshunds can relate to this relationship. Any dog, regardless of breed, that you take into your home and care for will become a part of your family. Usually so deeply loved until their death will affect you more than you ever thought possible. That pain is the kind of pain that I believe God feels when we reject His love and His offer of forgiveness through believing in Jesus for your salvation. It may be even worse than that. My point is this: He loved each of us enough to send Jesus to die on the cross so many years ago just to pay the debt for our sins that we cannot pay.
