Love

Should you ever doubt your value or your worth, consider that Love Himself died for YOU.

 

Perfect died for the imperfect

Love gave His life for the greedy

Whole died for the broken

Truth died for liars

Friend died for His enemies

Selfless died for the selfish

Love gave His life for the haters

Sinless died for the sinner

 

The world may tell you that you are unworthy, but Jesus Christ said something very different when He hung on that cross and died so that, in Him, you could live.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. ~John 3:16-17 (NKJV)

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. ~John 10:10 (RSV)

 

Dear Heavenly Father, I pray that when the world comes against us and tells us that we are unworthy, that Your Truth would speak louder. I pray that when our past riddles us with guilt and condemns us, Your Spirit would whisper the Truth of Your Grace even louder.  When we can’t live up to expectations, when we doubt our value, when we simply feel unloved; that You Lord, would fill us, carry us, sustain us, and help us to understand that we are not who the world says we are, but that we are who You say we are. Help us to drown out the lies of the enemy so that we can live in the truth of the incredible love that You have poured out on Your children.  Whatever the world may tell us, help us to remember that we are children of the One True God.  In the precious name of Jesus we pray. Amen.

See Ephesians 3:14-21. (Click on highlighted link.)

    It is so hard to wrap our minds around God’s complete and perfect love for us. I think that is why he set up our lives with the family model. He speaks of all aspects of it in scripture. The closest we come to this love understanding is in the raising of a family. Your children are special. You nurture, feed, clothe, protect, discipline, teach, and prepare. Do they disappoint us sometimes? Do they disobey us sometimes? Do they fail us sometimes? The answer is yes ( not my kids mind you! ), but what do we as parents always stand ready to do? Embrace them with open arms and love them no matter what. Cause in all that, they bring us unparalleled joy! An amazing glimpse of God’s love for us can be found here, and was evidenced by His amazing sacrifice Paul writes in Romans: “God demonstrates his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” What an amazing truth that screams, “Jesus loves me this I know, and he loves you too!

      Jesus knows me, this I love! You are so right, Rick. I came closer to understanding the Father’s love for us when I became a mother. He is so good to us that He would model that love for us in a way that we could get just a glimpse of it. And, yes, He died for us while we were still sinners. What a great reminder that no sin is ever too big that His sacrifice is not bigger. What an incredible God we serve!
