A late Birthday present

Sunday was my birthday, and I received numerous B-day wishes from people all over, and am so thankful for the thoughts.

I received a late birthday gift from God this morning and wanted to share it with you. It comes from my quiet time in John 17. The chapter is an awe inspiring look into the life of Christ as He prays for God’s will in His life, His disciples life, and in our life.

This morning was one of those days in which something I had read numerous times before jumped off the page as brand new and overwhelmed me emotionally. It happened in verse 23. “I am in them and You are in Me. May they be made completely one, so that the world may know You sent Me and that You have loved them just as You have loved Me.”

That expression…that God the Father loves me as he loves God the Son…God loves me as much as He loves Jesus…WOW! I have asked the question “How could God the Father allow His Son to die for sinners on a cross?” Because He loves this sinner as much as He loves Jesus!!! Oh my!

How could we ever feel unloved? What a gift!
