Things are going on in my life that should terrify me, and to be honest, at times they do. During these times the Enemy has continued to chant in my ear, “there is no way God could love me.” As I have dwelt upon this thought I have come to one conclusion, Satan is telling my a lie of omission, the truth is:
Without the Life, Death, and Resurrection of Christ there is no way God could love me as his child.
But since Christ did live! Since he did die on the Cross. And since he did rise from the grave, God can love me as his child.
God does love me as his child.
Not because I am better than someone else, not because of something I have done but because of what God did.
See I rebelled, and during times in my life, I tried to buy my way into salvation, Good Deeds, Good Works, Long Prayers.
In the midst of my selfishness and my evil desires: God saved me.
He just saved me, he gave me Grace, and he gave me Faith in his Son, Jesus.
I wasn’t saved because of something good within me. I was an enemy of God, and yet God saved me.
I was drowning and God was my lifeguard.
I was on fire, he was my fireman.
I was losing blood, he was my doctor.
I was guilty, yet he judged me innocent.
I was dirty, yet he washed me clean.
My life was jacked up, he gave me the Gospel.
I was a wreck, he sanctified me.
My heart is still dirty, my desires are still evil, and God still loves me.
Father, keep my eyes on you. Keep me focused on the Cross. Remind me of the Gospel that saved me and is saving me. Holy Spirit sustain me. I am nothing without you my Lord. Jesus remind me of living life like you do. Gotta keep my eyes on you. Gotta live life for you, gotta live life for you.
