This Holy Week, as we watch life budding spring green on tree branches and pushing through the soil, I pray that you know how deeply the Creator of the world loves you, just as you are.
Before you drew your first breath, He loved you.
He loved you before you were a thought in your parents' heads.
He loved you two thousand years ago when He chose to die for you.
I pray that you know this ... really KNOW this. And I pray that you are overwhelmed with gratitude.
Remember who you are to Him this week.
And remember why He died.
*Title of hymn by Samuel T. Francis
