Precious to God

Category : Uncategorized

Most of us probably know John 3:16 by heart. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” We take it for granted or we gloss over when we see the guy holding the sign at the football game. We’ve seen it. We’ve heard it.

But a recent experience for me helped me to see this verse in a new light, or at least a better understanding of the “love” described in this great verse. While at a conference, I was walking around the vendor’s area, where people were trying to get everyone to go to their Christian college, use the latest software for ministry, or my favorite, taking names to win an iPad mini (which I did NOT win). But the one booth that changed my experience was one that I can’t name or tell you what they were promoting. What I can tell you is the person working the booth took the time to tell me how incredibly special I am because God loves me. I am special. I am precious. For God so loved ME, that He gave His one and only Son.

We are so very precious to The LORD. We need to remember that God loves us and He will not forsake us.
