You Are to Die for
Whenever you feel small…
…remind yourself that God thinks the world of you.
Whenever you feel down…
….remind yourself that God things you are to die for.
God sent his own son to die for your so you had a way to spend eternity with him.
God did not save you grudgingly. He saved you in his joy.
God loves you. He is not going to take his love back.
There’s nothing you can or leave undone that would make him change his mind. It’s all done. Grace upon grace. Upon grace. It’s all grace.
This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him. (John 3:16, MSG)
It’s up to you to decide what you do with God’s love and grace.
Do you turn away?
Or do you accept it, embrace it, live in it?
Do you let God cherish you, even change you for the better?
Because you are the apple of God’s eye.
You are to die for.
How you love us!
Each and every one of us!
You sent your own and only Son to die for us!
You truly love us.
We turn to you and receive your love and grace.
We love you!
Be praised forever and ever!
In Jesus’ name,
Q4U: Do you truly believe that you are the apple of God’s eye?
Be blessed, my fellow pilgrim, as you live in God’s love and grace!

I don’t think many of us realize how many choices we have. I know I am just beginning to grasp this concept.
I hear you, TC. Also God’s love is way more than we can ever understand. It feels good, though, to continue to be in awe of God. Thanks for chiming in! I appreciate you! Big blessings!
God thinks the world of me (and you.)
He sure does! 🙂 Blessings to you, Glenda! And thanks for commenting!
