It’s kind of fun in those moments when the kids are in bed and the dishes are done, to think about the Big Questions. You know the list.
Why am I here?
What is the meaning of life?
A question that people from ancient times to now have asked is, why in the world, literally, did God create people? We are a handful, as past generations used to say. We mess up. Sometimes we’re on our way to being smart then find ourselves flying down the Stupid Highway.
God must get tired of us, right?
1 Peter 2:9 says, "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light."
In those terrible moments when you feel dirty and worthless, remember this verse. God says you are special to Him! You!
Begin praising Him for this incredible gift, and begin to understand that He made you to fellowship with Him, forever.
That’s pretty awesome.
Lord, all through your Word, You speak of us as the object of your love. Your incredible gesture of sending Jesus for us is proof of that. Thank you. Amen.
