John 3:1-2 “See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know Him. Dear friends, we are already God’s children, but he has not yet shown us what we will be like when Christ appears. But we do know that we will be like him, for we will see him as he really is.” NLT
It is impossible to comprehend how much God loves us. His love is wider and deeper than any love we could imagine. God saw us in our sinful state and loved us enough to pay the price for our salvation (John 3:16). God showed us his love by giving us the gift of salvation. But he didn’t just save you. He also created you intentionally. He chose your DNA and your gifts because he loved you uniquely. There may have been a time in your life when you wished you had different characteristics but God never did. God is the creator of so many special things from mountains to mitochondria and God thought you needed to be created. He loves you uniquely and he showed that when he created you and sent his son so you could remain in his love. As you go through this week, remember that you are incomparably loved as a child of God!
