His Masterpiece

There‘s nothing in us that would make God love us. He loves us because He simply has no choice. He created us. He created us in His own image and likeness!

He knows everything about us. He knew us before we were even conceived and loved us from the beginning of time. Every day, when we wake up happy to be alive, it is God who sends us messages through rays of sunshine and the smell of the morning breeze. We don’t need to feel anything special to know that God loves us, or see angels flying above us, or hear voices, or even see smoke coming from the corners of our room.

God Needs Us

My husband, a preacher and youth pastor, once said that “God needs us”. God needs you! He loves to be with you! He loves how you look. He loves your hair, your voice, your way of looking, and he loves how unique you are. God needs you.Yes, you! He searched for you even from the beginning of time.

Adam and Eve quickly discovered that God was not willing to lose them after the fall. It was God who made the first step to “mend the relationship” He sought after them to let them know that He had a plan to save them, a plan that would extend to the rest of the human race. (Did I say that God needs you?)

With time I’ve realized that to love God means to accept His grace, an abundant grace. To love God means to trust Him and know that we are the reason for His love. Often we are like Martha, one of Jesus’ friends, who, every time he came over to visit, was too busy with things she felt were important, missing out on the opportunity to learn what Jesus wanted to teach her. We need to be like Mary, Martha’s sister, and sit at the feet of Jesus, allowing Him to speak to us and mend our soul (Luke 10:38-42).

Our Creator loves to spend time with us…We are his masterpiece! “Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness. . . So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him. . .” (Genesis 1:26-27).
