November 16 / Proverbs 16 / Luke 3

Proverbs 16:2

All one’s ways are pure in one’s own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit.

Why do you do what you do?  Anything you do…?

What is in your heart toward someone when talking with them, when acting toward them?

Even while doing something nice for someone, it is most important what is in your heart toward them at that time.

Luke 3:22

YHWH told Jesus, “I’m delighted in you.”

Therefore, YHWH delights in us because of what Christ accomplished.  We are worthy and approved of by God Himself, not because of anything we’ve accomplished ourselves or had to earn, but because of what God declared.

Therefore, living as tho you are unworthy of God’s love denies who He is, who you are, and leads to sin…always.

You are cherished by God.  No one can take that away from you.

We are becoming more like Jesus everyday that we seek Him.  It feels as tho we experience the delight of God more and more as we are conformed closer and closer to the image of Jesus.


*Something to chew on (bonus)

Chun-An shared last nite something he came across:  that many say love is the great motivator.  But it’s not.  It’s longing.

What do you long for?
