Why does God love you so much?
For the same reason the artist loves his paintings. You are His idea!
Ephesians 2:10 confirms that we are “God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
In the movie Hook, Peter Pan had become old and looked nothing like the Peter the lost boys knew. In the midst of the boys shouting that this was NOT Peter, one of the smallest boys pulled him down to his level. He places his hands on Peter’s face, moved the skin around and reshaped his face. The boy looked into Peter’s eyes and said, “There you are, Peter!”
Shh. Listen. Do you hear?
God is saying the same words to you. There you are! There you are!
He’s seeing you and loving the you he sees.
