“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all–how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?” – Romans 8:32

These past few weeks I have been meeting with and caring for an unusually high number of people who are facing serious trials. During these times of trials the question that is often either clearly voiced or at least hinted at is; “Does God really love me? Is he really good? And if so, why is this happening?” I think it is no mistake that the enemy is mounting these kinds of spiritual attacks during this time of year; the time we celebrate the most pure and perfect expression of God’s love for us. The entire week leading up to Easter is filled with clear teaching about God’s incredible and sacrificial love. From the washing of the disciples’ feet, to the painfully intense prayer that Jesus offers up in the garden, to the culmination at the Cross, it is all about God’s love!

Our enemy, the devil, hates God. He hates us. His desire is to keep us from knowing and experiencing God’s perfect love. But even in the midst of the enemy’s schemes, do not be deceived! God loves you! He has done everything to show you his perfect love! I know this is hard to believe in the midst of trials, but the one who gave his own son to save you has not suddenly forgotten you. In fact, he still has nothing less than the very greatest blessings intended for you. Look at the Cross – He loves you! So take time this week to read through your Bible and look deeply into the love of God. I pray you truly understand the depth of his love for you this week, so that you can truly celebrate the power of his victory over death for you next week!

Loving Father, let us rise above our feelings and circumstances to see more clearly than ever Your powerful and sacrificial love for us.

In Christ’s Service,
Pastor Shane Cannon
