God Loves You!
“Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.”
Ephesians 1:4 (NKJV)
You and I were chosen by God before the creation! What an incredible thought! God knew us before there was any physical creation. God created us as physical human beings so that we would be able to prepare for our coming positions in God’s eternal Kingdom.
God tells us in His Word how much He loves us and accepts us, and even though He actually chose us for Himself. We read it, but we have a difficult time receiving it.
After all, how could God, who is perfect, be pleased with us in our imperfections? He can because He separates who we are from what we do. As believers in Jesus Christ, we are God’s children—all of our sins have been washed away by the blood of Jesus. We may not always act the way He wants us to, but we never stop being His children and He never stops loving us.
Whatever problem we may have to face we must always keep our eyes on Jesus and depend on His strength to give us the victory! We need to always remember that Jesus through the Holy Spirit is preparing us for our positions in God’s Eternal Kingdom.
Father God, please help us to begin to comprehend how important we are to you. And how much you love us.
