"By this we know love because He laid down His life for us" 1 John 3:16
Let's remember Jesus Christ being crucified for our sins. It should have been you and me on the cross, but Jesus took God's wrath for our sins on Himself.
Do you see how much Jesus loves you? Please take time today and reflect on Jesus' crucifixion that God required in His justice to forgive our sins. Thank Jesus for shedding His blood for you. You are important to Him.
The three nails and their four nail prints in Jesus' body show that Jesus loves you, as does the wound to His side from the cruel soldier's spear.
Jesus' wounds with their scars are because He offered His life to God the Father to redeem you from sin and the devil. Jesus suffered God's wrath so you wouldn't have to.
If there is a sin in your life, then turn from it and be free.
Jesus loves you more than you can comprehend because only God's love for you is perfect. He accepts you.
Throughout the day think how Jesus Christ loves you with His perfect love that He would lay down His life for you.
Jesus loves you.
I am praying for you to see how much Jesus loves for you. In Christ, Steven Andrew
Today, let the Lord speak to you and personally challenge you, my friend.
I want you to be free. To be free to live the life I have in store for you. For each of your steps to be led by My grace, by My Spirit.
I want to release My life and joy within you. I want you to be free, free, free!
But as you know, every time you don’t forgive, it distances you a bit from Me.
And time goes by...and you keep dwelling on it and brooding over it.
I want to liberate you. To teach you how to forgive. To help you forget the pain caused by their words, their attitude...So that finally, you’ll live free from resentment, from pain, from bitterness, from anger, from a longing for vengeance.
LEE, let Me restore you and heal you. Lay down your pain and bitterness at the foot of the cross. Put this situation, this unforgiveness, into My hands.
Ask Me to help you, to rise up and restore you. I am here. I am here, so close to you.
Together, it’s possible. With Me, it’s possible to forgive. To bless your enemies. To forget the past. It is possible.
I want you to be free…

Thoughts on Today's Verse....
After restoring the presence of God to his people through the Ark of the Covenant, David and Asaph gave them these verses as a song to perpetually remind them of the importance of seeking God because ... our strength is found in him ... our grace is from his loving presence ... and our hope is in seeing him face to face and knowing him even as we are known by him. We must look to the Lord and not seek our own way or follow our own path.
O Lord, I know you created me uniquely as you fashioned me in my mother's womb. Yet I know I can never have the freedom or creativity in my life that you long for me to discover, unless I first seek you and your strength. Please bless me with the assurance of your nearness as I seek you with all of my heart and use my abilities in creative ways to bring you glory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
