“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
-2 Corinthians 5:17
God loves you more than you love your kids or grandkids. God treasures you. God adores you. God values you. God wants you to go to heaven more than anybody else does. God wants you to live a full life more than anybody else does. God loves you enough that he gave his own Son, Jesus, that you could be redeemed to him.
You are worth as much and loved by God as much as he loves Jesus, Mary, Peter, and all the heroes of the faith. They were not loved on merit; they were loved on the very essence of who they were – children of God.
And so you are loved. You’re the beloved! God loves you and God will take care of you. You don’t have to worry. Trust him and believe in him. Can I get an amen?
Prayer: Dear Lord, I put my trust in you and in your love for me. Amen.
Reflection: What do you feel when you realize the height and depth of God’s love for you?
