“This is what real love is: It is not our love for God; it is God’s love for us. He sent his Son to die in our place to take away our sins.” 1 John 4:10 NCV
Every time I come to these Gospel scriptures that explain God chose me before I ever chose him, I am always stopped dead in my tracks. Every. Single. Time. And isn’t that the way it should be? When I finally understood what the Gospel is, it’s like somebody got in my face, grabbed my shoulders, shook me, and yelled, “wake up!” I hope for the rest of my life I will continue to stop dead in my tracks when I encounter Jesus!
And what about you? Has the Lord been tapping you on the shoulder? What will you do?
