You Were Claimed Before Being Cleaned

The good news of the gospel isn’t just that God loves you, but that He loves you as much as He loves Jesus, and that when He looks at you, He doesn’t see your sin; He sees His Son. It’s good news that Christ cleanses us, but even better that He claimed you before cleaning you. He saw your mess and said, “You’re mine!”{Rom. 8:17; Jhn. 17:22-24; 1 Jhn. 3:1-3; Isa. 43:1}

“Hanging upon the cross, Christ was the Gospel.” ~Ellen G. White

Gratitude Challenge Day 7: God Chases

 

 love is inspite not IG

3 Things I’m grateful for — Day 7:

1. God chased me.
2. God caught me.
3. God keeps me.

Chased. Caught. Kept. I’m His! The pictured quote, “Love  is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart” just rings so true to me. That is the love that chases us, the love we show when we chase others in kind. Love chased your filthy heart and chases mine. A.W. Tozer said, “God’s already put me so far in debt that if I were to live one million millenniums I couldn’t pay Him for what He’s done for me.” I mean with every fiber of my being that I owe a debt of love I never can repay. I’m grateful to have such a God and that He has me. Join me in this challenge; feel free to tag or link me! Post 3 things per day for 7 days.
