Sometimes it’s good to come back to the simple truths of Scripture.
Here’s one that never gets old: Jesus Loves Me!
I reflected on this recently in my SOAP Journaling in John 15.
“Just as the Father has loved Me, I have also loved you;Abide in My love.”John 15:9
This is an amazing reality. The way that the Father loves the Son is the same way that Jesus loves His disciples. What a picture of ongoing, unconditional, selfless love! Then He tells them to abide in that love – to remain in it.
I need to know that Jesus loves me. I choose to receive His love for me. I will rest and remain in His love. I will not seek to be loved by others or desire their approval. I will abide in Jesus’ love.
Jesus, thank you for loving me. Help me to believe that you do… and to realize there’s nothing I need to do to earn or deserve your love. Amen.
