Beloved: Be-Loved

The God of the universe, the same God who paints a sunset, shapes a mountain and plans the waves at the beach, has chosen to love us, not because of who we are, but because of who He is. Our role in this is to BE-LOVED.  –Ron Edmonson

See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is.  1 John 3:1-2 ESV

I am beloved. I am overwhelmed by this love.

Here is a song by David Crowder (Oh How He Loves) with Matt Chandler and John Piper. Be encouraged. Be-loved.

  1. And it is His love which gets me through so many things in my life. And when I forget – what more beautiful is a reminder than the beautiful world that He created.

  2. Love this! What a great post to read first thing in the morning, a perfect devotional to start my day. Love that verse and love that song. How can we not be overwhelmed by His love? Awesome.
