“And today the Lord is making this agreement with you: you are to be a people particularly His own…” (Deuteronomy 26: 18)
Something about this line strikes me to my core. You are to be a people particularly His own.
How do I reconcile this idea that this liturgical season I am in is one of preparing for the death of Christ, but even though I am a participant in the crucifixion, he wants me to be particularly his own.
This King of the Universe, humbled himself to become man, take on my sins and still for some reason wants me and my messy life.
If He wants me anyways, how could I say no to this man?
I am going to try to spend the rest of this season learning how to say YES to a God that sees my mess and my sin, and wants me anyways.
It’s the least I can do for Him… right?
