Amazing Heart


“Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them.” (Luke 12:37, NKJV)

This is Jesus speaking of Himself. He’s calling His own to be alert to His arrival. Makes my spirit perk up once again.

Then, He’s promising something else, from his oh so amazingly humble heart—He will serve us.

That undoes me.

Imagine it—Jesus, the King of kings, the One who holds the universe together by the power of His Word, will serve us. You and me, His beloved.

I think that’s why. We’re His beloved. He would do anything for His beloved. He has. He died for us. I have a feeling, too, that it’s His pleasure to serve us. Wow. Stunning, this example of cherishing. We are His bride and even as He cherishes us now, He will continue when we are with Him in heaven. (where I believe we’ll have an even greater capacity to experience it with Him)

His is an amazing heart.

How God Loves You


...how GOD, your God, loves you! (from Deut. 23:3, MSG)

Those words minister to me. God is so personal. He’s been reminding me of His love and grace a lot lately. I am so thankful for this new season we’re in together.

The assurance of His love gets me through the long days, the tough days, the busy days.

The reminder of His love melts my heart.

The promise of His love ministers hope to me.

His faithful love carries me and assures me.

Take time to bask in His love today. Oh how God, your God, loves you!
