Friends, be encouraged and know that God will not leave nor forsake you. He loves you so deeply beyond human comprehension. Imagine your first love, the fluttering of butterflies in your hearts and stomach. The giggling sensation of a loving touch and overwhelming calmness of contentment in the arm of your love. All this is not adequate enough to describe the love experience with the most high God. It is just too awesome! Knowing God loves you, with weakness and all is something that should give you warmth.
You see we do not qualify for love because on our own merit, there ain’t anything good in us, we backbite, hate, envy, tell lies, an average Joe is full of arrogance and so on. Yet God gave his own son Jesus Christ to die for my sins and yours. Christ redeemed us from all the evil that was second nature to us.
The evil things we enjoyed in the past is repulsive to us now. In the past when a guy “checks you out” you feel good about it. Now you are like common man, repent. You are conscious of your royalty, you are not common, not cheap, you are rare, wonderfully and beautifully made, not a play thing to be handled any how. You are Christ ambassador, a diplomat, God’s own special person. Whoa!
Our God is awesome, recreating strength, courage, love and patience out of nothingness. Revamping our life’s to exude glory, honor and majesty. Can you see the picture of who you are through the eyes of the Master? Open your hearts my friends, let the love of Christ in. You will be transformed to be who you are created to be, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a special people that God gives authority to have dominion upon all things created.
Will you draw close to God today, repent of your do it yourself approach to life, invite Jesus in to take the rein and lead you on the path of righteousness. He loves you regardless of your decision today. You will be doing yourself a disservice if you reject Christ love. It is freely given, please stretch your heart, extend your hands today, reach out in faith, just believe and ask him to touch you today. Tomorrow might be too late!. Today is the day that the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it.
A song of ascents.
1 Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
2 Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
to my cry for mercy.
3 If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
Lord, who could stand?
4 But with you there is forgiveness,
so that we can, with reverence, serve you.
5 I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
and in his word I put my hope.
6 I wait for the Lord
more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning.
7 Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
for with the Lord is unfailing love
and with him is full redemption.
8 He himself will redeem Israel
from all their sins.
