It’s not a new song.
It’s not an original song.
But it has completely wrecked me.
“Your love is proud to be seen with me.”
How could this be?
I’m not even proud to be seen with myself most days.
There is a completeness to the Father’s love for us.
1 John 3:1-3 in the Message Translation words it this way:
3 What marvelous love the Father has extended to us! Just look at it—we’re called children of God! That’s who we really are. But that’s also why the world doesn’t recognize us or take us seriously, because it has no idea who he is or what he’s up to. But friends, that’s exactly who we are: children of God. And that’s only the beginning. Who knows how we’ll end up! What we know is that when Christ is openly revealed, we’ll see him–and in seeing him, become like him. All of us who look forward to his Coming stay ready, with the glistening purity of Jesus’ life as a model for our own.
Let us meditate on this.
