Chapter 10: Beloved of God
10 Beloved of God
To the praise of the glory of his grace,
wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.
God has accepted us into the Beloved. That is, He has received us
into His Family and Household, forgiving all our sins and remembering
them no more.
God loves you with an everlasting love. He has received you fully
and completely with no reservations into His Family. You are now
the Beloved of Christ Jesus!
To all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called
to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God
our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ.
I Thes 1:4
Knowing, brethren beloved, your election of God.
For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy
God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a
special people unto himself, above all people
that are upon the face of the earth. The Lord
did not set his love upon you, nor choose you,
because ye were more in number than any people;
for ye were the fewest of all people: But because
the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the
oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath
the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and
redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from
the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
But many people don't know the love of God. They don't know that
He is a good and merciful God. Knowing God's love towards us,
knowing that we are accepted in the Beloved, draws us towards God when
we sin. Knowing His love and limitless forgiveness leads us to
repentance, because we value and yearn for His fellowship, which is
broken thru sin.
Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness
and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing
that the goodness of God leadeth thee
We are the light of the world. We are the present day ambassadors
of God's love and mercy. We must not only be the Beloved of
Christ, but we must be the love of Christ to the world. We must
reach out with bowels of mercies to this signing, crying, dying world
and pull them into Jesus' waiting arms.
Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy
and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness,
humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering;
10.1 Apple of His Eye
We are the apple of His Eye. God's choice price in all
creation. He has chosen us to be the Bride of Christ. To
rule and reign thru all of eternity with Christ Jesus, ever sharing in
intimate fellowship with God.
He found him in a desert land, and in the waste
howling wilderness; he led him about, he
instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his eye.
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under
the shadow of thy wings,
God values you! He considers you worthy to be apart of His Family
and Household. He sent His only begotten son to free you and to
lead the way unto His eternal salvation. Glory be unto God!
