Dear Precious Friends,
On this beautiful new day, this gift from God, I pray you are waking up praising Him for this gift. I am overwhelmed by the love He has for us. THE GOD OF THE UNIVERSE THINKS ENOUGH OF US TO SEND JESUS TO THE CROSS TO DIE FOR US. I am overwhelmed by this.
Ephesians 3:14-21 reminds us:
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!
What is amazing about the truth in Scripture is God's commitment to us. He has absolutely no conditions or restrictions and isn't based on whether we love Him back. Nor does He have more love for "good" people who may strike us as more worthy. He loves us even in our sin, even when we don't repent. His love for us gives us power to live holy lives, walk obediently with Him, and learn to love Him the way He deserves. To follow Him is to receive the love He has been offering all along. Every single moment, whether awake or asleep, we all live under the amazing covering of the Lord's wondrous, absolute love for us. However to fully experience His love, we must receive it. May we say yes to this amazing gift that God wants to pour out on us and share that love with others. It's why we are here. May we let His great love for us overflow to those around us and be contagious.
