Do you want to have your heart sing?  Hear this promise to you:

“But anyone who loves God is known by him.” (I Corinthians 8:3)

If you love God, if you seek after him—even if it is imperfect—you are known by him.  The one who brought forth matter and gravity a gazillion years ago knows you.

And do you want to know how badly he loves you?

He chose to come down and take our place, he chose to bear the consequences of our sin, guilt, and shame.  For the joy of this relationship, he endured the brutal, bloody death on the cross for you.

If you love God, you are known by him.
