My dearly Beloved,
The world today is searching for true love. Dejection, rejection, isolation have spread to every nook and corner. There is no love lost among people today. Nobody loves me is the desperate cry. Beloved, lift up your eyes, love has another spelling, it is Jesus.
The Bible speaks of a woman named Lydia from the town of Thyatira in Philippi; she was a seller of purple. One day, Paul and his fellow members in God's Ministry came to the river bank to pray and preach the word of God. Lydia and some women who happen to be there are touched by the Word of God. Her life takes an about turn, and she begins her journey with the Lord, extending a helping hand to Paul and the other disciples from then on. (Acts 16:13-15).
"These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have over- come the world" (John 16:33). The cross tells us of one Man who loved us so much that he was ready to lay His life down for us. Every step He took to the cross, every drop of blood He shed, every wound He bore on His body, screams aloud and tells us how much He loves us, and wants to be a part of our lives. He loving words, “My son, my daughter, my beloved, reveal the anguish in His heart which cries out saying, “You are Mine, My heartbeat.” Has anyone laid down their life for you?
Beloved, His resurrection has paved the way for you to become His. The devil cannot stop you. If someone is, then it is you. His victory on the cross was for you to be free from the final verdict –death that sin brings in your life. Jesus Christ is waiting with His arms outstretched. Tear yourself away from the clutches of sin and run into those saving arms. Dear one, He is standing at your doorstep. All you need to do today is believe in Jesus! He loves you like no other.
Loving Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus, forgive me for ignoring You and what You did on the cross for me. Cleanse me with Your precious and holy blood and put in me a new heart. Fill me with Your love that is so wonderful and unconditional. Father, deliver me from the claws of the devil and his evil spirits that keep me away from Your love. Change my life that I may stand every storm in my life fearlessly and witness for You. Help me to serve You in these last days and live for Your glory. Thank You Lord!
In Jesus name
