Happy and Blessed Easter to you and your family!
These last few days we’ve celebrated Good Friday and Easter ~ Resurrection Sunday! A time to contemplate the ultimate gift given to mankind.
If you have ever wondered how God could possibly see us (you and me) as HIS Masterpiece, remember HE can … because God sees us through Jesus ~ and the ultimate sacrifice HE made!
Ponder for a moment … God looks at you and me … and instead of seeing everything we’re ashamed of, or disappointed about; instead of seeing us defeated or a failure; instead of seeing us sick or disfigured … HE sees us blameless and righteous, as we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior! Wow! What a gift we’ve been given, and what a reason to celebrate!
I pray you have received that gift, and with all of your heart you know ~ beyond a shadow of a doubt ~ that you ARE God’s Masterpiece (HIS uniquely created, loved, cared for Masterpiece)! The One who gave HIS life in exchange for yours ~ so you could live a victorious life here, and for eternity! You ARE HIS precious child ~ see yourself as HE does!
“For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.
For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him.” John 3:16-17
