THIS SERIES: HOW TO LIVE IN REST
No amount of bible reading, meeting attendance, charity work or being good will affect the way He thinks of you.
The fact is He loves you. Full stop. With all your mistakes and failures, with all your idiosyncrasies and bad habits; with your unique personality, gifts and abilities; with your distinctive outlook on life; He loves you with a love so passionate, He was prepared to undergo the most terrible suffering in order to draw you to Himself.
You don’t have to do anything to earn His favour, you already have it; there is no exploit which will get Him to notice you, as His eyes are already on you taking note of every detail of your life.
You are the beloved. Forgiven, accepted, treasured, delighted in. You can stop trying so hard for His approval; through the amazing grace-filled work of the Lord Jesus, you already have it.
And He will perfect the work He’s started in you – working from inside out – if you let Him!
