His Love is Not Performance-Based

Posted on Posted in devotions

“And a voice from heaven said, “You are my dearly loved Son, and you bring me great joy.” Mark 1:11 (NLT)

Understand that before Jesus ever raised anyone from the dead or healed the sick, His relationship with God the Father was affirmed and it brought the Father great joy. That’s the same with us. Before we go off and accomplish some great task, or save the world, God is already smiling on us. Not because of anything we’ve done but because of who we are to Him. We are His daughters through Jesus. Receive today, in this very moment, where you have been placed in Christ. Receive what God has freely given you. Choose not to try to earn your standing in God as His beloved daughter or give it up because of feelings of unworthiness. You are a daughter of God and He loves you not because of anything you’ve done but just because He does. Receive His love.

Prayer: Dear Father, I receive today, in this very moment, where You have placed me in You. I am Your daughter in Christ and You love me, not because of anything I’ve done but just because You do. I receive Your love. In Jesus Name, Amen.
