But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
God longs to lead us closer to Jesus so we will experience the power of love and understand what it means to live in forgiveness. He covers us with grace and reaches out to touch us.
None of us are perfect. We sin and sin again, yet God continues to reach out to connect us with the Savior. He longs for us to experience a transformation of life. He restores and help us understand what Jesus has done for each one of us.
Sometimes we become distant from the One who longs to lead us. We try to handle life on our own and forget how it feels to be led. We confuse doing what is good with what has already been done, and neglect to open our hearts for surrender. But God LOVES US! He sent His Son to humble our hearts for His.
The Bible says, Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory. Romans 5:1-2
God empowers us to recognize He will never stop trying to bring us back where we belong. He will never be far away. He gave Himself to take our sin and continues to love us to the Savior who died and rose again. What more could be done to remind us HOPE comes from faithfulness?
God gives us the will to make our own decision as to whether or not we will love Him. When we struggle to remember what He's doing in our lives, God will make His presence known. He will nurture our desire to trust and help us receive the gifts of His greatness. He will love us even more...
We will all fall short of the glory of God, but He will never stop working in our lives. Our loving Father will demonstrate His holiness. Lives will be forever changed because of His great love. His ways are better than ours. He will grow the love of our faithfulness and help us see what a difference it will make in our lives. He is God! He loves us!
Dear God, thank you for taking care of everything we need. Forgive us when we walk away from strength which comes from Your holiness. Humble our hearts for Jesus so we will find peace in His presence and gratitude for what has already been done. Thank, you Lord! Draw us closer to You and help us experience the power of Your greatness. We will honor You with ALL of our love. Amen
