we’re LOVED by God

This week’s theme is being LOVED by God. Huge thanks to Jon White for writing this week’s posts.

John 1:1-3 says:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being.

I remember answering the phone to my brother on the day my nephew was born. He told me everything was okay, my nephew is healthy, my sister-in-law is tired but happy, and that he is going to ring around the rest of the family to let them know the news. I felt such joy radiating through my body, I cried tears of happiness and relief at the news of his safe arrival – my nephew already had my love, but I hadn’t even met him yet. I cannot even imagine how much love his mum and dad felt for him!

I wonder if that is the kind of feeling that God has when he creates us? In the scriptures, we are told that all things came into being through Jesus (John 1:3). In a few moments of silence, could you ask God to reveal to you some of the love he has for you over this week?
