Knowing That You Are Loved

You and I need to be loved. It’s just the way we’re made. We need unconditional love. But in the all-too-disposable world in which we live, that sort of love all too often eludes us.

Have you ever felt so desperately alone that it seems that there’s not a single person on planet Earth who really cares for you?

I have, and it’s absolutely awful. It’s the deepest poverty your soul can ever know; knowing beyond doubt that, quite simply, you’re not loved; knowing that you really don’t have anyone with whom you can connect, upon whom you can lean.

It’s that complete devastation that caused Jesus to cry out on the Cross – as my sin and yours, for the first and last time in all eternity, tore the Trinity apart.

Mark 15:34 At three o’clock Jesus cried out with a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” (NRSV)

When I think of Jesus hanging there on that cross, it must have been just the loneliest, most horrible place on earth.

“My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”

But He did that for you and for me. Jesus hanging on that cross is God crying out to you and me, here and now, “Don’t you realise? Don’t you realise how much I love you?”

When I look at Jesus hanging on that cross, there’s an ache in my heart. The pain. The price. Yet in a strange sort of way, that ache makes me whole again because it’s about knowing that I am loved. There can never be any doubt in my heart again.

It’s the cry of God, which rings down through the centuries.

Don’t you realise? Don’t you realise how much I love you?

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
