You Are Special

It Is Written, Proverbs 3:1 – 4, my son, do not forget my law, but let your heart keep my commandments; for length of days and long life, and peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart, and so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man.

Since we were all created by God, He loves us all equally. As a parent loves his children the same, no matter how many there are. Just as good parents have hopes and dreams for their children, God has dreams for us in the form of plans for our good.

Just as an obedient child is a blessing to us, an obedient child of God is a treasure to Him. We teach and train our children so that they will grow and prosper. The love we show them, teaches them about love and relationships. To a much greater extent, Jesus taught us by His life on Earth.

Children have their own minds. Sometimes they make bad decisions, or do things we are not happy about. They are human, and are in a world of negative influences. We don't abandon or disown them. We help them get back on track, because we love them.

The love of God for His children cannot be described in human words. His love for you and me goes so much deeper. He knows what we will face every day. Jesus didn't come to this Earth just to be an observer. He became human and experienced life in a tough world, so that He could fully understand what it was like to be human. After all, how can you describe what you never experienced?

Since God is the ultimate parent, and knows all things, He understands how weak we are. He knows all of our faults, and loves us anyway. Even when we ignore or forget about Him, He does not abandon us.

Some people lead a life of sin for years. Sin is a slap in the face to God, but if your truly repentant and go back to Him, He wipes out all of those sins. It is like you never sinned. Why does He do that? Because he loves you, and you are special to Him.

We have barely scratched the surface of God's love. Remember that God does not judge us as other humans do. No matter what we have done, if we repent, He wipes the slate clean, and opens His arms wide to embrace us, His special children.

You can do yourself a real favor. Read and meditate on1 Corinthians chapter 13. Praise the Lord!

Remember Jesus Loves You

Prayer of Salvation

Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me. Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation. Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.

Thank You

Amen
