The Proof of Love
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8, NKJV

Has someone suggested to you that:

If God really loved you, He would heal your disease?

If God really loved you, He would never have allowed you to lose your job?

If God really loved you, He would bring your spouse back home?

If God really loved you, you would be healthy and wealthy and problem free?

Yet God has said that the proof of His love is none of those things! The proof of His love is that while we were sinners, passing Jesus by on the road of life, He sent His only, beloved Son to die for us.

Would you thank God, not just for saying, "I love you," in words, but for proving it?

Blessings,



Anne Graham Lotz

Couldn't agree more.

In terms of these questions:
  • If God really loved you, He would heal your disease?
  • If God really loved you, He would never have allowed you to lose your job?
  • If God really loved you, He would bring your spouse back home?
  • If God really loved you, you would be healthy and wealthy and problem free?
I would suggest that the individual who suggests these is encouraging faith that is dependent on the individual getting what they have asked for, not in God Himself.
