God proclaims throughout His Word that He takes great delight in us with an everlasting and steadfast love. And He does so for His namesake. God doesn’t love us because we deserve it; we don’t. God doesn’t love us because we earned it; we can’t. God doesn’t love us because we are lovable; we aren’t. God loves us because God loves us. Period. He is love and it is not expressed because of the worth of the object loved but from the worth and nature of the One loving. Why does God love us? Because He does. Rest child-like in this liberating and empowering truth (Zephaniah 3:17).
