“Come near to Me, hear this: I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, I was there. And now the Lord God and His Spirit have sent Me” (Isaiah 48.16).
God the Father carried out the plan of redemption because of His great love. Jesus sacrificed Himself for us because of His great love. The Holy Spirit eagerly empowers us because of His great love. The triune God is willing to seek and save the lost, even the worst of sinners. Sinners often doubt that God loves them, but they should not. This is simply a sick and twisted pride at work. No one is worthy of God’s great love. We don’t deserve human love. We don’t deserve the food we eat, the rest we receive, the homes we possess, or the air we breathe. We are all unworthy. The more we understand this, the more acceptable to God we are! We come to Him empty and leave full. Romans 8.32 says, “He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things” (Romans 8.32). God loves you and me not because we are worthy; He loves us because Jesus is worthy.
