I’m really feeling something today. We are royal screw ups. Daily, hourly, and even more often than that, we sin. Sometimes on purpose, sometimes before we’ve even recognized the thought. I realize that I don’t deserve heaven. I don’t. I can never deserve it. I don’t deserve for Jesus to love me. I don’t deserve for Him to look on me with compassion. I don’t deserve for Him even to look at me. But He does. There is some miraculous, amazing, incredible love in Him that I will never be able to fathom. He doesn’t just have warm feelings for me. He loves me. Passionately. In a way that causes Him to actually pursue me. His love is active, charged, consuming. Do you grasp that? I’m only just beginning to, and I’m not sure we ever can really get it on earth. But He does. He loves me and you with a love that is bigger than love. Bigger than all of the world’s love combined. How earth-shatteringly beautiful.
