#1149 – Accepting God

Good morning people who God loves deeply

I need to share something that recently blessed my heart so much and I know delighted the Father heart of God.

Recently I had the privilege of preaching at a youth group. I felt God tell me to speak about each person’s value: how everything new is valuable but the reality is many people don’t feel valuable. I then shared a couple of ways how we lose this sense of value and the only way we can restore our lives to the God-created original state of value.

Here’s the awesome part – about 20 young people made a commitment to start a relationship with God; a God who says “Come just as you are and let me do a work of restoration in your life. Oh, and by the way, I’ve paid the price for the restoration!!!!”

God loves people who are lost! God longs for a relationship with every person He has created! If you have friends who don’t know God personally, I want to remind you today that God earnestly desires friendship with them. Don’t give up in your prayers and living a life that accurately reflects God. God loves the lost!!!

God also loves those who have started the endless journey of knowing God better! If you have received Jesus as your Saviour, I encourage you today to go deeper in your relationship with God! There is so much more available for every person!!!

Let’s remember one of the most well-known and important verses today. I encourage you to meditate on this and allow the Holy Spirit to awaken something fresh in you.

John 3:16-17 For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
