Day 223 – August 12
God’s Plan = Love
“In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him.”
1 John 4:9
Why did God send Jesus? Couldn’t He just wave his wand and make things better? One could probably argue that He could because He’s God, but that wouldn’t have solved the greater problem. The problem in the world wasn’t how bad people are; it was and is that people are dead and life had to come through our savior. God’s love was made clear to us through Jesus so that when we receive His love, grace, and forgiveness, we can live through Him for the rest of our lives. My hopes become His plan, my dreams become His way, and my future becomes secure in Christ. The only way to fail is to reject His love and live for ourselves contrary to God’s plan. God’s plan was Jesus first and then you. You are God’s plan for the world to find hope in Him! You are the solution through Christ’s love to the problems we face every day. Together we will change the world through Christ’s love living through us. This isn’t a cool idea; it’s our destiny in Christ Jesus!
We’re more than conquerors in Christ.
