Our Greatest Need
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believed in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Our greatest need is love, and the greatest gift is love. Everyone in the entire world needs the gift of love, but it is not the world’s kind of love- it is God’s kind of love!
God’s love is unconditional, which means we do not have to do anything to earn it or deserve it. We just receive it. Love that must be earned is conditional love. When certain conditions or requirements must be met for love to be expressed, it is harmful and the relationship will not grow.
People who have never received the gift of unconditional love have come to believe they must work hard to earn it. Their life is full of striving, trying to be good enough or do enough just to be loved and accepted. They become people-pleasers, and everything they do is out of a need to feel loved, even if it is only a drop.
This is not God’s plan for your life.
Spend time with Him daily, waiting before Him until you feel saturated with His presence and filled with His love. As you begin to sense His Love, you will feel compelled to share it with others.
Our greatest need is love, and God has provided for our need.
