Look at the abundance of heavenly blessings God has bestowed on us! And I’m pretty sure our minds cannot comprehend how long He has actually loved us – “even before He made the world!” We should be overwhelmed by the riches of His kindness, grace and love toward us in Jesus! Your Shepherd laid down His life for you. God purchased our freedom from sin, Satan and death with the precious blood of Christ and then adopted us into His own family. You are chosen. You are holy. You are forgiven.
