“You are valuable! I place great value on you, not for what you do; but simply for who you are. Because everything is right between you and Me, you are free to forgive those who come against you. You can love those who need love. You can bask in My love. Your life can become of great consequence once you understand how safe you are in My arms. Sit on My lap and receive the wealth I choose to give you. From that foundation, I want you to reach others. Tell them that they can have the same access to Me that you have. Tell them that I care for them. Tell them that Jesus has provided a way for them to be reconciled to Me. You come to Me to be filled. I love to be with you. I also love to send you to others.”
2 Cor. 3:18 AMP
And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.
Eph. 3:17-19 AMP
17) May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love.
18) That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
19) [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!
1 Peter 2:9 NIV
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God…
In a world that spends most of its time seeking some kind of acceptance, almost any kind of acceptance, isn’t it wonderful that you and I have found total acceptance with Father God through Jesus? Isn’t it also wonderful that we have an answer for those who need to be loved? Not only can we love them because of Jesus, but Father God will love and care for them for eternity because of Jesus. We just need to introduce them to Him!
Help me to understand Your love and then tell others about it, Lord,
