“For God so loved the world…” John 3:16 NIV
God has a case of the “so loves” for you and me. Yes, the “so loves.” That kind of love that seeks you out. It pursues you no matter the cost. It finds you on our worst day and sticks with you. It’s the kind of love that resembles “those” special parents that show up with screened t-shirts and hats to their child’s first T-ball game. They scream and cheer coming unglued when that child hits the ball just a few inches off the “T” sending themselves into lovesick frenzy. Its the sort of love that pays for a prop plane to write a message of love in the sky for someone standing below. It’s the sort of love that will work late nights and three jobs to purchase that engagement ring. It gets in a car and drives across the country to see someone’s face. It gets on a jet plane and fly’s across the world to fight for a cause. It puts is life on the line if that’s what it takes to protect what is most sacred to the heart. It trailblazes hope no matter the despair.
This love found its way to a cross taking on the sin of us all. Dying to save us so we could have that personal, intimate relationship with our heavenly Father despite our sin. A genuine case of the “so loves…”
He loves every part of who you are. You were created uniquely and creatively not just “because” but with a purpose and plan that is like your fingerprint…only unique to you. He created you to have this awesome, intimate and authentic relationship with Him. He “so loves” you. You can feel it in the air. You can see it in the sky. It is written on our hearts. And, Jesus is most likely wearing a t-shirt with your face on it. :)
