#perfectlove. (AConfidentHeart Blog Hop Thursday)

My husband had the opportunity to participate in a "pulpit swap" this past Sunday.  He preached at another church in our denomination and the pastor from that church preached at our home church.  It was fun to get to meet some other brothers and sisters across the river.  Joe picked one of his favorite topics to preach....the Gospel.  The Good News.  The Salvation Story.  #perfectlove.  I have been a believer in Jesus for a long time; since I was quite young.  Sometimes it is easy to forget exactly what God did for me on the cross.  He sent His Son to die for sins I have committed.  If you are a parent, would you ever consider having your child punished for sins of another?  And that punishment is death?  That is exactly what He did for me and you.  He sent His Son to die so that I may live.  I get so caught up in day to day living that my eyes shift from Him to others around me.  I worry about what people will think of me and begin to doubt if I am enough in a variety of ways..  This week I have been gently reminded by my Father that He is all that really matters.  And He has already shown me how much He loves me by saving me so that I can have life.  And I can have that life right. now.  I don't have to wait for "future eternity".  I can experience his #perfectlove daily by seeking Him and relying on Him.
