GREAT DETERMINATION

How amazingly great your love is for us. I try to comprehend it and it eludes me. As you bring new people into my life that you want me to love, you show me that the only way I can do it right is to look at how you love me. You love me with determination. You made up your mind about me before I was even born. Once I was born you were firm in your intention to draw me to you and save me. You would not change your mind about me no matter how I acted. You established a specific course of action to resolve the separation between us. That action was sending your Son Jesus to die on a cross for me and all of humanityís sin and rebellion. At that point it was settled. Your determination to love me into eternity would not stop. It doesnít stop, ever!!! You are fixated on not only saving my soul but on blessing me and showing me favor all the days of my life. It has nothing to do with my performance but for the plain and simple fact that you want to show me grace. You made a choice not to give up on me. When I keep all this in mind I am able to love others with the same determination. When I am ready to not reach out anymore because of one more hurt from someone, you remind me how many times I have hurt you yet you did not turn away. When others are in the midst of despair turning one more time to the very thing that is killing them, you remind me of my own despair and futility and how you have shown me mercy and patience through making the same mistake over and over again. You show me the many common threads that we all have and that we really arenít that different from each other. We all have sinned and messed up time and time again. We all have tried to live life our own way making for ourselves our little idols that take the place of where you should be in our lives. We all want unconditional love and acceptance and to have a purpose and have gone to many extremes to find it. The thing is we have had it all along. Some of us have found it thanks to your awesome determination to chase us down with your mighty love. We have a purpose now and thatís to tell others of you, our wonderful, passionate God who gave your own Sonís life to show how determined you were to give us eternal, abundant life!!!!
