Jesus loved the unloved and unlovely. It is so usual, so normal and so routine for Him. He picks up with dull uninteresting people, living grey little lives and makes them special. In fact the whole Bible is full of it. God choosing the unlikely people, the youngest sons, the barren women, not many mighty, give the nameless a name, putting His arms around them and acknowledging them. This is JESUS!

Loved by God by Max Lucado

“The LORD loves you.” Deuteronomy 7:8 NLT

God loves you simply because he has chosen to do so. He loves you when you don’t feel lovely. He loves you when no one else loves you. Others may abandon you, divorce you, and ignore you, but God will love you. Always. No matter what.

This is his sentiment: “I’ll call the nobodies and make them somebodies; I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved” (Rom. 9:25 MSG).

This is his promise: “I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself” (Jer. 31:3 NLT).

Do you know what else that means? You have a deep aquifer of love from which to draw. When you find it hard to love, then you need a drink, drink deeply, drink daily.
