All about my love for the Lord

His Loving Kindness…

Pink Bleeding heart

 

“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3

 

These words incase my heart with gold.  To think that the Creator of the Universe loves ME and YOU with an everlasting love. Do you know what that means? It means that no matter how fallen we are, the Lord will always love us. He will never forsake us or leave us or turn from us.  Our poor judgment, bad choices, ill behavior does not turn His heart from us. He draws us to His heart with loving kindness. He forgives.

We are fallen sinners in desperate need of a Savior. We have the gift of a relationship, a personal relationship with the Lord through Jesus Christ.

Take religion out of the equation. Take away the ritual and ceremony of ‘church life’. Take away the way we baptize, marry and even repent. Rid yourself of the weight of it all and come, unburdened, to the Cross. There is nothing that stands between you and a deep, committed, loving relationship with Jesus, save your reluctance and the baggage of the religion of your youth. This relationship is not about how many prayers you pray. It is not about your place in the church. It is intimate and personal and YOURS. Completely and totally yours. The relationship you have with Christ is unique to you and Him.

Come to the Cross. Ask the Lord to forgive your transgressions. Accept that through God the Father Jesus saves us from our sins. Believe that He absorbed all of your inequities on the Cross and that He washed you white as snow. Believe it. It’s that easy. There is no mystery or magic or secret password, there is only Jesus. He is benevolent and kind and Yours. An everlasting love.

Father,
I pray a renewing of faith in my life. I pray that my days would be laced in hope. I pray that I would trust that Your word is true and life-giving. I pray that you would fill me with the Holy Spirit so that I may be assured that my salvation is not contingent on whether or not I am good, but whether or not I believe that you died for my sins. I thank you for the simple gift of salvation. “For you so love the world you gave your only son.” (John 3:16)
