Surrender to Grace

God loves us just as we are.

~~~

Psalm 51:18-19

For you do not desire sacrifice; a burnt offering you would not accept. My sacrifice, God, is a broken spirit; God, do not spurn a broken, humbled heart.

***

Making a sacrifice is for our own benefit…not for God’s.

Letting go of our agenda frees us to take part in God’s agenda.

That can only lead us to freedom and happiness.

It is not so we can “earn points” with God. There is nothing we can do to earn God’s love. God already loves us beyond our wildest imagination…just as we are.

God loved us into existence. God has always loved us…and always will.

God loves us in our brokenness.

Bring your brokenness to your Loving Creator.

Jesus was not repulsed by the brokenness of others; he was drawn to it so he could reach out to them in mercy and love.

How else can anyone truly know what Unconditional Love is?

Loving God, I bring my brokenness to You today. Transform me by Your unconditional love and mercy…so that I might in turn extend the same to someone else.
