You are the one Jesus loves.
Perhaps you are not feeling that way today. Guilt, shame, neglect… trials of perseverance… all can blur the truth. You are the one Jesus loves.
No matter where you are today, no matter what condition your life is in, it takes only a simple act.
Will you pray with me today? Lord God, there are times when I feel unworthy to be in your presence… times when I want to hide or run away. But your hand is always out there. Always reaching. For no matter what I have done or thought, one truth remains. I am the one Jesus loves.
We are encouraged by your stream of invitations:
“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other.” (Isaiah)
Take words with you and return to the Lord. Say to him: “Forgive all our sins and receive us graciously, that we may offer the fruit of our lips.” (Hosea)
But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (2 Corinthians)
Today, my prayer is that we can turn together. Let the veil slip away. You and I. For we are the ones Jesus loves.
