In a world that is constantly focused on performance and status of some kind, I am learning a life-changing truth.
Jesus loves me. Before any performance or status or position I can claim, he loves me.
By nature, I tend to drift away from God and rely more and more on my position, status, performance, or the like. Some insecurity will stick its head out and rather than responding by preaching the gospel to myself – reminding myself that Christ has redeemed me – I will respond by indulging those insecurities.
It’s amazing just how easy and natural this is to do. I know this, but like everyone else I am vulnerable to it.
As weak as I can be, I am still redeemed by a God who loves me.
I am loved. That is all that matters. Nothing compares to that truth.
