Perfect Love

I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel.
Psalm 73:22-24 NIV

We tend to have a bias that cause us to see ourself better than we are. We think we are smarter and better than reality will attest. We are always the exception. We’re the one that won’t suffer the consequences of our behavior. No wonder Paul told us, “Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves.” Why all this pretense? Why can’t we be honest with ourself? Fear plays a huge part. We are afraid to be our real self. We know nothing of unconditional love. But Asaph, the person that wrote today’s verse, knew. He was able to admit to God how horrible he had been acting and at the same time experience the deep love that God had for Him. The Apostle John said it best when he wrote,’ Perfect love casts out all fear!” Today, open your eyes. You can go ahead and see yourself with all your flaws, all your needs, all your humanness. God does, and He still sent Christ to die for you. Accept and embrace His love for the real you today.

Dear Father, thank You for Your unconditional love for me. Thank You that You accept me for who I am. Help me to see myself the way You do. In Jesus’ name.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
