Preaching the Gospel to Yourself

"Dear Self,

The reality is that you only love God because he loved you first.

He loved you before you were born and chose you for himself. His love for you secured your salvation, and because you have experienced his life redeeming love you love him in return.

But for love to continue to grow and for you to love the unloveable, it is important that you meditate on the gospel. Get this - you only know what love is by looking to your Savior...

You must learn, relearn, and remember your Savior's sacrifice for the wicked, rebellious, blackhearted - for people like you. And when you see the Holy One's sacrificial love for you, you not only see what love looks like, but also you find strength and power to love like him." -Joe Thorn
