Vital signs- Friday, February 2nd, 2024


”God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other.“

‭‭1 John‬ ‭4‬:‭9‬-‭11‬ ‭NLT‬‬


As we think through the cost of following Jesus, lets ask one more question. What was the cost to Jesus? What did it cost Jesus to save us ? He came to live and die for us. He suffered deeply on that tree. His actions are an overflow of His heart. He loved us, and because of His great love for us, He gave himself for us. Because of the love that Jesus first gave to us, we can follow where He leads as we follow how He leads. Out of love. Sacrificial love. The love of God.

Take a moment to reflect upon Christ's love for you. Consider the height, length, and depth He went to redeem you. He who knew no sin became sin, bore the wrath of God that you deserved, and paid the penalty you owed.

Please don’t wait another day. Take time now or sometime today to consider these things and settle them with the Lord. Even if it takes several days to work through this please don’t put it aside. Ask Him for His help. Remember the price Jesus paid for you.

Your cost? Nothing in comparison.

His love for you? Without end. And remember that it will be more than worth it in the end. Because “the end” with the Lord goes on for eternity!


Father

help me see you and all you have done for me. Help me understand the great price you paid. Help me know your deep, deep love for me. Help me love you more and more as you have loved me. May I draw closer to you and trust you more fully each day so that I am able to truly deny myself, take up my cross, and follow you.

In Jesus' name, I pray,
Amen


Team Wade loves you and is praying for you❤️👊
