Grand Nephew Caleb Daniel made his “Grand” entrance into the world this week. What a wonderful gift our family received right here before Valentines Day. As each family member held him there was such a love and acceptance of him. No one was saying, “well when he grows up he better be this or that, or if he doesn’t do this or that we just won’t accept him.” Of course not! He is “our” boy and we love him. Nothing he will or will not do will EVER change our hearts!
If we, being human and flawed, feel this way about our little Caleb how much more does our heavenly father love us? Before the foundations of the world God knew us. When we were in our mothers womb He formed us. We are fearfully and wonderfully made! Now that’s love and God’s love is shown in His ultimate sacrifice to give His only son, Jesus, to die for each of us. John 3:16 says, “For God so love the world that He GAVE His only son that whosoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.” That’s true love!
God’s love is not based on are goodness or how we perform but rather on who’s we are and we are ALL God’s children when we accept His son, Jesus Christ, who gave His life for ALL of us. Receiving the love of Jesus and living in his love everyday, is the first and most essential step in having a love worth giving. Jesus gave His life for YOU so give your life to Him. Just like we have accepted and love our little Caleb just because he is in our family so God loves you and accepts you! Become a part of God’s family today. Click here to accept Jesus Christ!
