I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing. Galatians 2:21
I’d love to start off this devotional by asking you a question: What can you do in order for God to love you today?
I wish we were sitting together at a coffee shop so I can see your face and hear your answer. And regardless of what you whispered or wrote down, I am here to tell you that there is nothing you can do today to make God love you more or less than He does. This is good news!!
Friends, it is never and will never be about what we can do for Jesus; the focus is on what He did for us on the cross. He doesn’t want our actions, He wants our hearts. More good news is that Jesus knows us fully and deeply and loves us more than we can comprehend.
He is so acquainted with the details of our lives and longs to be in a relationship with us. He sits outside the door to our hearts, patiently waiting for us to let Him in. He doesn’t need us to clean up or tidy all of the rooms, He just wants us to come as we are and sit with Him. We can walk in the grace that He gives freely, knowing that He will never forsake us.
