December 9–How Great Is That!

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us,

that we should be called children of God!

1 John 3:1


We probably have all used that exclamation at one time or another when we are feeling good about something—maybe some project we just accomplished…maybe some good news we just heard…maybe some plans that just came together! We’re satisfied: Great! We’re happy: Great! We are feeling good about some expectation: Great!

And then…beyond what we can even imagine…our Holy Creator—the Sovereign LORD of all that exists—has made His love irrefutably, extraordinarily and passionately known to us. Our God, out of His amazing love, has given His Son to die for our sins and our shame…and He has made us His children through our faith in His Son, our Savior Jesus!

We have been lavished with—we are, right now, moment by moment being lavished with—the love of our Heavenly Father! God lavishes His love on His children continually—and His love saves, heals, transforms, frees and never ever fails us!!

How great is that!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
