Loved Outrageously

I heard this today from another site. Wow! This is amazing! I want the truth of these words to sink deep and take root.

"The Lord says that there is nothing you can do that would make Him love you more. There is also nothing you can do that would make Him love you less.

He loves you because He loves you, because He loves you, because He loves you... Because that is what He is like. It is His nature to love, and you will always be the Beloved.

His love is unchanging. He loves you 100 percent. And He won't love you any better when you become better. He loves you 100 percent.

And even if you have no plans to become better, He will still love you anyway. Because He loves you. Because that's the way He is.

And even if you don't want to change, He will love you 100 percent. Even if you have no plans to walk with Him, that's His nature -- He loves all the way, all the time.

His love is unchanging.
"But what will change is your ability to receive my love," says the Lord.

"Open your heart," says the Lord, "and you will receive more of My love than you have ever experienced before. You are the Beloved -- it is your job to be loved outrageously. It is why I chose you. It is why I set my love upon you, that you would live as one who is outrageously loved. That you would receive a radical love -- so radical it'll blow all your paradigms of what you think love is.

I will love you outrageously all the days of your life, because I don't know how to be any different. This is who I AM."

"And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."
Eph. 3:17-19
