Ephesians 1:11-12 – It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone.
Isn’t this the greatest, most heartbreaking love story of all? A creator, so in love with His creation. So in love that He made plans – wove together the most intricate and fine details so that His creation could have a purpose and something worth living for. He loved His creation before they knew anything about Him. He loved them knowing they would fail, curse His name and disappoint Him. He loved them regardless, making a way for them regardless. He pursued them every second of every day – ready to embrace them and welcome them home.
I don’t think we’ll ever be able to fully comprehend the size of His love for us. He loves us regardless of who we are and what we’ve done.
Live in His love. Live in the fact that you’re accepted, loved and wanted. Live in His great plan and purpose for your life. Embrace all that He has for you, not because of who you are but because of how great He is.
You are part of the greatest love story – the one where God let His only Son die for you. Base your whole life on His love, and watch how your life changes, grows and flourishes.
