The Father loves us as he loves Jesus, yes, just as much as he loves his own son, Christ. the Bible clearly tells us this. But most people find it very hard to believe that because they feel that they need to first make themselves worthy of that perfect love that's not based on conditions.
Until you deal with God's loving Son.. I mean no longer being at war with him.. you can't have peace with God. We make peace with God and then we have the peace of God.
Believer, you are loved in the deep darkness as much as you are loved in the bright light of day, but God wants us all to walk in the light. He enables, equips, and empowers us to. Jesus loves you and he is your living hope. God is your hope today -- he's light and in him there's no darkness at all.
