Psalm 17:8 “Keep me as the apple of your eye;”
[This, Lord God, is how you view each of your children, the object of your illogical, unbelievable love: we are special, unique, wonderful and dearly loved. By you we are delighted in, doted on and deeply cared for. You chose us, you cleansed us from our sin and guilt, you called us into your arms, you claimed us as your children, you commissioned us to special service and you cherish us wholeheartedly with joy.
Jesus made an amazing statement in John 15:9, “As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you.” This is an astounding, ground-shaking, worldview-shifting announcement. If we grasp this in ongoing depth, it will change our whole lives, resulting in us “being filled to the measure of all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:16-19).
Think, how does God the Father love Jesus the Son?
He loves Him enthusiastically
without any doubts,
What more could we want as Jesus us loves us like this. This brings worth, security, joy and peace. We don’t have to measure up, He won’t judge us, reject us or condemn us. His love wraps us in a warm embrace all the time. Then we obey Him as a response to His love for us. Perfect harmony!
