Jesus loves us

Read Luke 7:36-50 (

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.



God is like an ‘itekisi’ (Taxi).

Yes, because God’s heart always has room for one more.

Your family car may have limited seats. Your school bag can only hold so many books, but God so loved the world (that’s 7.7 billion people at present, not even counting all who have lived and will live), that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever (there’s room!) believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16 –

Watch out for how many things ‘get full’ or ‘run out of space’ today and remember, that will never happen with God’s heart.


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 ( 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.


He’s perfect.

God is perfect.

And that is good news but it can also be quite intimidating and He may seem unapproachable. Yet at the same time it’s this same perfection that makes you respect and worship Him.

This means that He is never wrong no matter what He allows to happen in and around us. His perfection also reassures us that the plan He has for our lives can definitely be trusted, His will for our lives is perfect.

Today take some time out and reflect on that.
His perfection assures us that He can always be trusted.
