Leviticus 5; Psalm 3-4; Proverbs 20: Colossians 3
Coming after Easter Sunday these words in Colossians 3 struck me this morning: “as those who have been chosen by God, holy and beloved.” (from verse 12) Usually I focus on the rest of that verse; those things that I need to “put on” such as a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, etc. I have spent the last week contemplating what Christ has done for me, His suffering, death and resurrection. This morning I am thinking about the result of His sacrifice and am filled with thankfulness that God has chosen me. I am filled with thankfulness that like Christ I am His beloved child, and I am holy. I do not feel very holy, but there it is in God’s word so it does not matter how I feel about it. I want to go through my day remembering this, remembering that I am God’s beloved child.
Grace, peace, and mercy,
