Reflection: God's Crazy Love

8:00 AM

For God loved the world so much 
that He gave His one and only Son.
-John 3:16


I thank God for giving me my passion to write. That's why as a thanksgiving, I decided to start a Reflection series. Because despite not being a technically good writer, despite some grammar slips here and there, despite the criticisms, insults, and mockery I've received from people telling me I'm not a REAL author, I know in my heart that this is a gift from my Big Daddy. I know this can only come from Him---from God's crazy love for me.

I'll always be grateful for Him providing me with the tools and skills I need to use this gift. For leading me to the right people, bringing me the right opportunities and allowing me to build pipelines for His blessings to flow into my life.

Truly, my God is crazy in love with me!


God's crazy love

I'm a nobody. I'm only a speck of dust in His vast universe.

I often find myself asking, "Why, Lord? Why do you love me this much? I am a sinner. I often neglect you. I often blame you for my misfortunes. Why sacrifice your Son---Your life for me?"

And the only answer is love. Pure, unadulterated, complete, infinite, unfathomable, crazy love.

Who can explain love? Even science fails to give it justice despite its intellectual research and theories. It's still not enough. Nay, it's not needed by people in love.

"I don't know, I just love her. That's all I know." That's what you'll often hear people respond when you ask them why they love someone. It goes beyond the physical. It is more than just what is certain and what's there. It is beyond human comprehension. And that is only human love.

God's crazy love is so much more. For this world's wisdom is foolishness (absurdity and stupidity) with God. (1 Corinthians 3:19)

That is why the proud, intelligent ones despise Him. For they cannot put Him in a box. For they can never explain His beginning and end. He is their failure when it comes to displaying their wisdom.

But that's what makes Him God. He is infinite. He is beyond our grasp. If we can understand Him, then we will be equals.

God's crazy love is not for the perfect. It is for those who are humble enough to admit they are not complete, they are not enough and they are not well. Those who will receive Him and allow Him to heal them.

God's crazy love is for those who are crazy enough to admit that they need His craziness in their lives.

Hey, I am crazy. That's why despite my flaws and imperfections, despite my difficulty to accept His love and feel His presence, despite my unlovable and unloving state sometimes oftentimes, I accept Him. For He's crazy enough to accept me in the first place. (Just between you and me, I think He's crazier than all of us put together).

The Lord your God is with you. He is a hero who saves you. He happily rejoices over you, renews you with his love, and celebrates over you with shouts of joy. (Zephaniah 3:17)

Kind of hard to imagine an almighty, all powerful, majestic, glorious King rejoicing and shouting with joy, right? I mean, I've always thought kings are reserved, dignified, solemn. We know some kings could even be tyrants, taking delight in punishing his people.


Oh, but this King we have is crazy in love with us. He is our Father before anything else. And that is something we may never come to understand. We can only allow Him to love us or reject Him like we always do.

God's crazy love is inviting you to accept Him today. Are you in or out?

  1. Sometimes I don't understand it so much either. Because He loves us all so much, even though sometimes I feel so undeserving. And when I feel that love, it is one of the most complete feelings I ever get.

  5. I love you my dear friend!
    Shall we respect what man says about us instead of honoring God?
    God's Love for us drowns every bit of lies shot against us.
    Yes we are dust but the Holy Spirit in us makes the difference.
    I love this Lux....I dare say it is the best I have read here :-P
    Bear Hugs and Blessings to you

  13. Religious belief is really important in life. I sure agree.

  14. I, too, believe God to be in love with me and that makes me easier to love him. Nothing else can be so empowering as this belief. I do not understand why people tell to fear him for he will punish us for our misdeeds. Where there is fear, there is no place for love and hence a constant need to break free of the realms of fear and moving away from him. And, where there is love, there can be no place for anything else. Thank you writing this post. It is a wonderful way to start off my day by reading this post as first thing in the morning.
