In spite of what we deserve, in our relationship with Jesus, we are:
Deeply cared for,
Deliciously doted on,
Delectably delighted in.
It is with His whole will that Jesus loves us:
Eph 1:4-6 “For he chose us in him before the creation of the world… in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.”
Meditate on that, soak in it, rejoice in it.
When we begin to understand how much we are loved, we become a wider, deeper channel of God’s love for others and of glory to Him.
Eph 3:18,19 “I pray that you…may have power…to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
Basking in that truth, in the light of His love lavished on us
Brings transformation of our mind, will and emotions
That His love may shine out from us to others,
Bringing Him great joy and honor.
Lord Jesus, help me to better grasp how much you love me, that your fullness and love may overflow from my being onto all those around me. Through this may they come to know your love in the same power.
