The Highest Price

The most worthy God paid the highest price for our sin-stained soul.

I walk in complete wide-eyed wonder of this God who loves this much. Of this God who is intimately acquainted with me and is so involved in every little thing I do and think and feel. Who cares for me tenderly and protects me passionately. This God who I can’t even begin to comprehend His majesty, that He loves so much that He would experience the most painful execution in human history to save us, have us, keep us, make us His.

I’m in utter awe that I get to know Him. Not just know Him, but k n o w Him. That He loves us humans with a great love. The greatest love. It’s beyond our mind’s ability to fully grasp. It’s just too great.

He’s so majestic, He’s so wonderful.

All I can do is humbly bow low in complete submission, and love Him until I die.

It’s what I want. He’s what I desire.

I can’t believe He’s mine.

There’s not a thing in this world I would choose over Him. I’m His possession.

Surrender to Jesus, and experience the most incredible love, fulfillment, joy, purpose, pleasure, and satisfaction that you can’t even begin to imagine. He is  e v e r y t h i n g.

His Inheritance

Relax…there’s no need to fear.

When you truly belong to Jesus Christ, you are safe in His hands. He is invested in caring for you, sustaining you, growing you, holding you tightly to Himself. The Father gave us His own Son’s life to inherit us as His special treasured possession.

Do you know how incredibly profound that is?
God Himself gave Himself over to experience torture, abuse, and death so He can have us as His treasure, forever. We are an i n h e r i t a n c e to God. Meditate on that, because it’s the most important truth in human existence, and one that makes us whole as human beings.
Knowing this, there is literally no way that He will lose His tight grip on His sons and daughters. The thought of this might make some people uncomfortable – but once you know Him, once you see Him, and once you experience His magnificent love, His holding onto you tightly won’t be enough for you and you’ll ache for more of Him.

Be prepared, if you give your life over to Him, you’ll fall in love with Him. There’s no way to experience His saving grace and not have intense emotional feelings of love and longing for Him. Our salvation isn’t based on feelings but once you’re saved there’s no way you won’t have feelings. And if you have little to no feelings for Him, please seek His face and His love with everything in you.

As His people, we will go through high seasons and dry seasons, seasons of obedience and seasons of doubt, seasons of quietness and seasons of pure fire. But, no matter what season we may face as believers, we will n e v e r stop loving Him. Never. Once you’re His, you’re His for life and loving Him becomes more natural than breathing or blinking.

Take seriously the admonition in scripture to test yourself to see if you’re in the faith.

Because you will deeply love the God who saved you from hell.

 

‭‭{Ephesians‬ ‭1:18‬}
“I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.”

‭‭{2 Corinthians‬ ‭13:5‬}
“Examine yourselves to see if your faith is genuine. Test yourselves. Surely you know that Jesus Christ is among you; if not, you have failed the test of genuine faith.”

{Matthew‬ ‭7:21‬}
“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.”

What’s His will?

‭‭{Matthew‬ ‭22:37-40‬}
And He said to him, “you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.”This is the great and foremost commandment.

{Deuteronomy 10:12}
what does the Lord your God require of you, but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in all his ways, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

‭‭{Micah‬ ‭6:8‬}
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.

‭‭{John‬ ‭10:27-30‬}
“My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one can snatch them away from me, for my Father has given them to me, and he is more powerful than anyone else. No one can snatch them from the Father’s hand. The Father and I are one.”
