The number “7” represents perfection in the Bible. With that in mind, here are 7 points that demonstrate God’s perfect love for you. Yes, God loves you!
1. Jesus covers you with His love and fills all the cracks in your life.
God loves you. His love is poured out on you. It forms a buffer that, if removed, would leave you exposed, vulnerable, and deeply wounded. You don’t know that reality because God has never removed His love. But if He ever did, you wouldn’t believe the awful reality! (Perhaps that is what hell is.) God’s love pours over every issue in your life and trickles down into the cracks and crevices of all that is unfinished and imperfect. Jesus is your covering.
2. Jesus faced every kind of temptation you do. Then He died in your place.
The Lord knows how hard life is. He faced every kind of temptation and trial you face – without sin. That elevates Him to the highest place. It lifts you up also – because this up-close investment of His life in the human condition proves Jesus wants to share your life in every way. The incredible bonus – He also wants you to share in His life in every way. Jesus knows from the ground level up how hard your life is. Living “without sin” enabled Him to take your place and lift away the consequences of sin – to spare you from punishment. Jesus is your sacrifice.
3. Jesus carried His own blood into the real tabernacle.
The fact that Jesus carried His own blood through the heavens to offer on your behalf in the real tabernacle, as only the great High Priest could, further demonstrates His love for you. He reverently entered God’s holy place straight through to the Holy of Holies. Upon entering, He boldly walked to the altar, and presented His own life blood to God as the atonement for your sins – for all sins of all people in all centuries of time. Jesus is your great High Priest.
4. Jesus lived His life in the trenches like you do.
During His life on earth, Jesus’ love for you put Him in the trenches of difficulties and troubles – like the ones you experience. He went through the painful stuff. Because He endured all types of suffering – without sin – He intimately connects with your deepest struggles and sorrows. Jesus is your great Lover.
5. Jesus opened a door for you to approach Him any time, about anything.
You can approach Jesus at all times about anything. Reach back from your heart by faith to His great heart. Grab onto the Scriptures about God’s love for you. You can have confidence and assurance in His perfect love. Jesus is your door to God’s great heart.
6. God’s love covers all your life conditions.
There is no sin, illness, condition, loss, torment, or sorrow that the love of God does not care about. His love drowns out all screaming voices. His whisper overpowers the noisy world. The storms of life are calmed by God’s love. It covers your sins, provides in your illness, comforts in your sorrows, and fills the holes of your losses. God loves you. Jesus is the voice of God’s love for you.
7. The Creator designed you with needs, and He intends to meet them.
Jesus cares about your needs. He created them. Hunger, thirst, sleep, stress, companionship, health – all part of the template of being human. You were created to depend on God. Because God loves you, He promises to meet ALL your needs. (Phil. 4:19) Jesus is the one who will meet your needs.
You can trust Jesus. With a sincere, humble heart, you can live in God’s perfect “7” love.
In fact, you are a “7” to God. Just accept it! Enjoy it. Love Him back. God loves you – so much!
