Don’t complain that no one loves you. For the Highest Majesty that exists in the entire universe loves you. Greater love does not come (“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” Jesus regarding His death on the cross in John 15:13; NIV); And more love isn’t needed anyways. Okay, sometimes in your solitude, you would like physical proximity and physical love. But that too will come into your life with God’s help.

Every example lags, but here: If you don’t have money, you think everything would be good if you had money. Of course, it is helpful to have money. And, of course, God wants you to have money, and of course you will have money, but ultimately it is not about money. First God, then everything else. This is the right order.

John 15:9

Because with God in the determining center of our thinking, everything else comes anyways. Above all, we can triumph in everything and every situation with God. Jesus summed it up: “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Jesus in Matthew 6:33; NIV) • Through  your acceptance of the sacrifice of Jesus, you are and forever will be righteous before God.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.” (Jesus in John 15:9; NIV)

You are the one whom Jesus loves

Do what John did: John always made clear: Jesus loves me. A total of five times he describes himself in his Gospel of John as “the disciple whom Jesus loved”. Yes, Jesus loved him. And from the knowledge John drew all his strength. Do the same. For Jesus loves you – no less than John. What a joy! “Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4; NIV. Of course also a spouse.

And you are not alone. As Jesus believers, you are closely connected with Jesus. “On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.” (Jesus in John 14:20; NIV) • Recognize today that Jesus loves you without ifs and buts, and that He is with you and you are with Him. Connected in an indissoluble way with each other.
