Maybe you have felt unwanted. “My parents didn’t want me.” Maybe they have joked “you were an accident.” Ouch! That must hurt!

ENTER Jesus.

This is what He tells us:
“Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of Godchildren born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God” (John 1:12 – 13 http://bit.ly/2ELtz1x)

We are children of God. We belong in His family. No human decision determined that. God did!
Your Divine Father welcomes you home.

Jesus loves me

No matter how young or old you are, how long you have loved and known Jesus for, it is important to hold onto foundational truths we find in the Bible. When we face hardship, challenges and anything else life throws at us it is important to come back to what is true.

“Jesus loves me this I know, for my Bible tells me so… Yes, Jesus loves me, yes, Jesus loves me.”

These are lyrics to one of the simplest Christian songs, yet they make the perfect sound track to your life. Read John 3:16 (http://bit.ly/23IQJw5) – reflect on the greatness of the love Christ has for you.

The day God took our place.

One of the names Jesus has is ‘Lamb of God’ [John 1.29]. The story of the birth of Jesus which we remember at Christmas means nothing without the accompanying story of His death which we remember at Easter. The lamb was the sacrificial animal that we first see rescue Abraham’s promised son in Genesis 22 and then later see taking our place when Jesus dies on the cross.

The joy of Christmas must be held alongside the heartache and joy of Easter as God made an eternal way for us to be with Him again.

The day God fed us.

One of the names Jesus has is ‘Bread of Life’ [John 6.35] which is a reminder to us that His words give us life. Being a follower of Jesus can be complicated and confusing sometimes but for me I am always reminded to return to Jesus for more bread.

When in doubt I remember what Jesus said the greatest command was: To love God with all my heart, soul and mind and to love my neighbour as myself. That is always a good place to go back to as I seek to follow the words and the actions of Jesus.
