God loves us all the same. Yes, we know that, but do we really know that?
God loves born-agains. God loves atheists.
God loves me the same now as a born-again as when I was an atheist.
God loves me the same as he loves Jesus.
God loves Jesus the same as he loves Satan.
God loves us all the same.
The difference is in our choosing to love God back. When you love God, you give your will for him to work through you, so he does. When you don’t love God, you don’t permit him to work through you, so he doesn’t.
God respects our free will. He doesn’t always agree with our choices, but he respects our right to choose. He gave us that right, and he honors it. Choosing wisely means following God’s advice. He’ll never force you, but he will vigorously advise you. He doesn’t leave you guessing as to which choice is the right one. He always makes sure that the right choice is clear to you. God will NEVER trick you into making the wrong choice.
God loves us all the same. Remember that, and pray for those who hate you. My grandmother and countless strangers prayed for me.
