Stop Running

“By this we know love, that He laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for the brothers.” ~ 1 John 3:16

John tells us that we know love by the way Jesus died for all of us. Let’s put that into perspective for a second. Every person that nailed/nails Him to the cross, He died for. Every person that shouted/shouts He isn’t real or He died for nothing, He died for. Every person that knowingly lives in sin, He died. Every person that walked away from Him, He died for. Jesus died for every single soul, because He saw worth when there was none. He saw beauty in ashes. He saw life in death.

So rejoice, for the LORD God sees you for what you truly are, His child. Some are still lost, while others have been found. Some are still running away, while others run to Him. But no matter how far you run, no matter how lost you are, and no matter what you’ve done Jesus is still waiting looking for you. He’s the good shepherd that leaves the 99 to save the 1. You can be that one. All you have to do is stop running and call out His name. He will run to you.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Stop Running.
