Dear brothers and sisters in faith,
Today we will meditate on the words from Luke 1:68-70 (NIV):
68 “Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them. 69 He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David 70 (as he said through his holy prophets of long ago),
I really love how much love God has for us. We really don’t deserve it, but still He has so much love for us. We can only hope to come remotely close to the kind of love that God has. His love also shows from the fact that through Him we are redeemed. Just imagine if all our sins, even after we have asked for forgiveness, would still be held against us? Through God and Jesus this changed. And just realize that He doesn’t even has any obligation towards us to help us. He just does it, because He loves us! Even the fact that we can be forgiven for our sins and still go to heaven is amazing in itself. In most communities past mistakes will stick to you even if you have changed your life completely.
