See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! - 1 John 3:1
Do you know how much God loves you? God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them (1 John 4:16 NLT). Augustine described God’s love for us this way, God loves each of us as if there were only one of us. You may say, if God really loves me, then I should not be going through hardships now or He should have been answering all my prayers.
Two thousand years ago, God demonstrated His love for us in the greatest possible way. He created us to be loved by Him. His love is not just a written phrase or an ideology. God showed His love for us by giving the greatest give He could give us, Jesus Christ (John 3:16).
You might have experienced rejection, or you may have not experienced affection and love from other people. Whatever you have experienced from the past, that never caused to change the love God has for you. You are loved!
Jesus loves you even before you accept who he is.
