If you had told me fifty years ago that one day I would be walking around with a computer in my pocket, I would have regarded it as unbelievable. Yet it is true.
Much of the Christian faith is unbelievable. Most unbelievable of all is the fact that the Eternal God of the universe, Whom my human mind can’t even comprehend, should love me. That He should want a relationship with me and welcome me into His family. However unbelievable it may seem to me, it is true. And it is true of each one of us.
1 John 3:1 reads, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! and that is what we are.” (NIV)
I’ve struggled in the past and sometimes still struggle with the personal aspect of this. I can accept that Jesus came to save the world but it’s hard to believe that He came for me. What has helped me is the little word, “whosoever” in the old King James version. I am whosoever. Some translations talk about anyone or everyone.
Jesus said, ” And the one who comes to Me I will most certainly not cast out [I will never, never reject anyone who follows me]. (John 6:37b Amplified Bible)
Thank you, Lord, that You love me. May this truth sink down from my mind to my heart and take root there, colouring all that I think, feel and do. Amen.
