“I will never believe in God.” “How can I believe in something I can’t see?” “All the church cares about is taking your money.”
I’ve heard these words spoken from family, friends, and coworkers. Some atheists, some believers that have walked away from the church, and some just aren’t sure if God really exists.
The world we live in is a melting pot of different beliefs. Beliefs that were fused together by our own personal experiences through this journey we call life.
The journey looks different for each of us, but whether believer or non-believer, we are all seeking one thing. It’s the one thing that defines who we are and how we see and treat others. It’s the one thing that all seven billion people in this world were created to receive.
To be loved unconditionally is at the core of who we are as human beings. Whether a believer or non-believer, we all want to be loved. We want to be accepted and have worth.
Whether a believer or non-believer, there is one thing we all have that God wants.
He loves us, accepts us and seeks us out.
In spite of our unbelief, our hatred, and rejection of God, He still loves us. There is nothing we can do to get rid of His love.
Whether a believer or non-believer, God will leave the ninety-nine saved, to find the one who is lost. He never quits. He never gives up. He loves unconditionally.
God has given us the freedom of choice to turn our backs on Him or accept Him, but He always remains who He says He is: LOVE.
“Americans are migrating away from religion at an unprecedented rate; Christianity in particular. People are leaving because religion has lost its appeal. Once upon a time Americans believed religion offered solutions. Today, religion is viewed by many as the problem. Do you have religious doubts? When your prayers go unanswered, do you wonder if God exists? Does science make God seem unnecessary?”-Andy Stanley
