The Early Church: Trusting in the Gospel of Jesus

The moment we are born into this world, we begin searching for love. We learn early that if we adapt to the social norms of a group we want to be associated with, then we get love – in a certain sense, at least. But the reality is that the love of our friends can never be enough. Even when we’ve met “the one,” his or her love will never fill the longing in our hearts. Not even a mother’s love is enough to satisfy the eternal hunger we have for love, because we’re looking for imperfect people to love us with a perfect kind of love.

God’s love is the only love that will satisfy the eternal hunger in our hearts. Thankfully, even though we chose sin and failed to love God as we should, He chose to set His love upon us. The ultimate expression of love was Jesus’ death on a Roman cross. This was the only way we can be reconciled to the Father and experience the love we’ve always longed for.

How does God’s love for sinners make a difference in your life?
