I would lke to introduce here today’s words of “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young:
I HAVE LOVED YOU with an everlasting Love. Before time began, I knew you.
For years you swam around in a sea of meaninglessness, searching for Love,
hoping for hope. All that time I was pursuing you, aching to embrace you in
My compassionate arms.
When time was right, I revealed Myself to you. I lifted you out of that sea of
despair and set you down on a firm foundation. Sometimes you felt naked ー
exposed to the revealing Light of My Presence. I wrapped an ermine robe
around you: My robe of righteousness. I sang you a Love song, whose beginning
and end are veiled in eternity. I infused meaning into your mind and harmony
into your heart. Join Me in singing My song. Together we will draw others out of
darkness into My marvelous Light.
The Lord appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an
everlasting love: I have drawn you with loving kindness.” -Jeremiah 31:3
I delight greatly in the Lord: my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and
arrayed me in a robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns
his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. -Isaiah 61:10
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation.
His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him
who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. -1 Peter 2:9
