“To be loved but not known is comforting but superficial. To be known and not loved is our greatest fear.
But to be fully known and truly loved is, well, a lot like being loved by God. It is what we need more than anything. It liberates us from pretense, humbles us out of our self-righteousness, and fortifies us for any difficulty life can throw at us” (Timothy Keller).
How many of us feel unknown and unloved? How many out there are dying for someone to see them and not to feel invisible?
Maybe you’re the one who will notice the one no one else sees. Maybe you’re the one who will remember what it was like when God loved an unloveable you and you in turn will love someone expecting nothing in return.
Everybody needs to know that they are fully known and truly loved. Only God knows us completely and only God loves us unconditionally and supremely. All the true love we share is God’s love within us flowing out to others.
Do you know and understand and accept that you are fully known and truly loved by God? All He asks is that you receive that love in Jesus.
