We are God’s beloved – Prayer for December 17. Praise the Lord everybody! A lot of times when we as Christians hear ourselves referred to as Gods beloved, created in His own image, we have a hard time wrapping our heads around that fact. The truth is out there.
Bible Verse for Today
“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
We are God’s beloved. We are His treasured, cherished possession. That is a tough truth to comprehend for many Christians on a day to day basis. In this day of cyber-bullying it is hard for Christians, especially young Christians to feel like a cherished possession of God. No matter your age it is hard to not feel awkward and miss-understood in this world making it hard to understand how The God of the universe even knows who we are, let alone see us as cherished possessions, yet He does!
God does adore us; His very nature shows us how much we are loved by Him. God is all powerful, all knowing, unchangeable and all-loving, yet He knows our names, He has counted the very hairs of our heads.
Despite His utter majesty, God sent His Son to die for us while we were yet His enemies. That is how much He loves us. And by us spending time getting to know Him in all His majesty we will learn what it means to be truly loved. God bless you all!
