“For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”
--JOH N 3 : 1 6
God has a track record of not giving up on his people. When they got lost, he pursued them. When they sinned, he made a plan to rescue them. When they ran away, he actively looked for them. When they were in trouble, he fought for them. When they continued to wander, he continued to seek them. When they cried out, he gave them a Savior. And when they turned to him, he embraced them with his creative, unlimited life.
You are a person, are you not? The good news for you today is this: You are so loved by God, the very one who created this world so that he could be in relationship with you. He sent Jesus to find you, to pursue you, to search for you. He will never give up on you. In fact, he is thinking about you right now. He is calling out your name, and he wants you to call out his.
Lord Jesus, thank you for chasing after me. Let me be found by you. Here I am, Lord. I put my life in your hands. Use me to find others in your love. Amen.
Look for someone who needs an extra chance today and find a way (through words or through actions) to share God’s love with him or her.
