If we connect the dots, I love what God’s Word tells us about His love for us. It goes so far as to say we belong to Him. (Anyone else thinking of The Lumineers “Ho Hey” right now?) He went so far as to give His own life for us. And because He purchased our lives with His own, we can trust that even when the hardest times come our way (and they will), He will see us through. He’s not going to let anything defeat us. We belong to Him as His prized possession and He loves us like woah.
All who belong to the Lord,
show how you love him… – Psalm 31:23a (CEV)
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.- 1 Corinthians 6:19 (NLT)
For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16 (NLT)
“And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? – Matthew 6:28-30 (NLT)
