Sometimes a blog doesn’t have to be a novel and a half to make a worthwhile point.
Sometimes an Internet article doesn’t have to have a flashy title or amazing graphics to captivate the audience.
Sometimes, what people really need is a little bit of truth to brighten their day.
There is a deep, yet simple truth for you today.
A long time ago, a famous theologian was having a retirement party. While he was indeed retiring, it was a last farewell to many people as the theologian was falling into poor health, and would soon die.
It wasn’t just his friends, family and coworkers there, the press was there as well. One reporter decided to ask the theologian the most pressing question.
“Sir, you are a renowned theologian. You have written books, given soul wrenching sermons, helped reshape the theological landscape. Tell us, what is the most important thing that the world must know.”
The theologian answered, without a second thought or a moments hesitation.
“Jesus loves me, this I know. For the Bible tells me so.“
Here is the simple, but deep truth.
You are loved.
You are liked.
You are appreciated and found wonderful by someone that cares.
You are not a discarded piece of garbage that the world has rejected.
You are a marvelous piece of art, build and created with purpose.
You are adored.
You are the apple of someone’s eye.
And not just anyone, but the apple of Christ’s eye.
He loves you.
And the deep, yet simple knowledge that you are loved, that makes all the difference in the world.
It can change your life forever.
I hope it does.
