You’re In

“You don’t need a telescope, a microscope, or a horoscope to realize the fullness of Christ, and the emptiness of the universe without him. When you come to him, that fullness comes together for you, too. His power extends over everything. 

Entering into this fullness is not something you figure out or achieve. It’s not a matter of being circumcised or keeping a long list of laws. No, you’re already in—insiders—not through some secretive initiation rite but rather through what Christ has already gone through for you, destroying the power of sin.” 

Colossians 2:9-15 MSG

My prayer for you today is that you will lay down the lies that haunt you at the foot of the Cross and allow yourself to be wrapped in the embrace of God’s grace.

I am praying that the brand of “broken and worthless” will be destroyed by the enormity of His love for you.

I am praying that today you would know you are valued not because you are good but because you are chosen by Jesus for a life of love.

I am praying that this minute you will know that you are forgiven not because you deserve it but because you ask for it.

I am praying that you will live cherished not because you love Him well, but because He loves you eternally.
