But now thus says the LORD, He who created you, O
Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I
have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you
are Mine." - Isaiah 43:1
Now most of you know John 3:16 -- the "Gospel in a
nutshell." You remember how it begins: "For God so
loved the world ...." That passage means the Lord
knows and loves everybody, which includes all the
billions of people who have ever or will ever live.
God loves everybody. Scripture is clear on that. But it
is also clear that He loves me, the individual.
When Jesus was born, it was to save me. When He
knelt in the Garden of Gethsemane, He received and
carried my sins. When He died, that was for me ...
and so was His resurrection. And now, as Luther said,
"The Holy Ghost has called me by the Gospel and
keeps me in the faith."
And that's true for you, too. You see, you are a very
special, a one-of-a-kind person to the Lord.
Dear Lord, truly You are a great God. You have the
capacity to love and reach out to save an entire world,
but You do so one soul at a time. I pray that while
there is still time, the lost may come to know You,
appreciate You, and love You in return. This I ask in
Jesus' Name. Amen
