Have you ever stopped to really consider what you mean to God? Sometimes we find it hard to believe that God can love our mistakes, our sinful nature and doubtful outlook. We hear all the time that God loves us, but do you believe that?

What must God think of you, that He sent His only son to die the worst death possible so that you never have to. He did this all to bring you into a reconciled relationship with Him. That’s how much He values you.

Read 1 John 4:7-16 (http://bit.ly/2Lt01Mt) for more about God’s love for you.



Have you ever seen a parent looking at their child with love? The joy on their faces when they pick their child up. The tears in their eyes when they mess up, the pride in their eyes when they succeed. Nothing that child can do, will stop that parent loving them.

Read 1 John 3:1 (http://bit.ly/2vES7o8)

God looks at you in the same way. He loves you so much that He claims you as His own child. You are not just another person or a number in the line, but His precious child who He wants to spend time with and share your failures and successes.


Jesus loves us

Read Luke 7:36-50 (http://bit.ly/2LnCJqZ)

These verses tell the story of a woman with a past (a sinner), who pours a jar of perfume over Jesus’ feet, wetting his feet with her tears and wiping them with her hair. Everyone else judged her – for her past as well as for her actions that day.

Everyone except Jesus.

Jesus has not changed. He still sees people beyond their mistakes; He sees through the masks we put on for the world. Jesus sees our innermost beings, the real us, where we are made in the image of God. And Jesus loves us.


Why am I here?

We all want to know that there’s a reason for our life.

A phone has a purpose for communication and a knife for cutting food.

The same is true of you and me. Psalm 139:13-16 (http://bit.ly/2YRs1ww) says God designed us for a purpose, which He wrote down long ago. Every talent given to us, every characteristic, every lesson we’ve learned – it’s all for a reason.

You may not see it, but you were designed for a purpose. Your life has a purpose. It can be hard to understand. But keep seeking Him, keep serving him and let Him use you for His glory.
