“Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.””Luke 2:13-14 NIV
Those who have placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ has the favor of Almighty God resting upon them. We don’t have to earn God’s favor or love because it is simply lavished upon us when we place our faith and trust in Jesus Christ. Long before we make a decision to follow Christ the Holy Spirit is drawing us.
It is an awesome truth that God has chosen us before the foundations of the world. Long before God ever created Adam and Eve the plan was put in place that Jesus would come and give His life for us.
When all things were created through Christ He knew that He would have to lay down His life for humanity. Nothing happens by accident. But everything happens according to God’s sovereign will. We must draw near with our whole hearts. As we draw near our hearts and minds become one with His. We see all things as He sees things.
Let us fix our eyes upon Jesus and be the bride He has called us to be. Let us set aside every idol and hindrance and seek the Lord with our whole heart. His love is lavished upon us. Let us lavish our love upon Him.
