What did you do when you were in trouble as a child? Were you one to run and hide? Or did you boldly own up to your offence and receive your discipline?

I was definitely in the run-and-hide category. As a perfectionist, any kind of perceived bad behavior and consequent punishment was terrifying to me—so I would run. I think the most common reason we as humans can come up with to convince ourselves that God does not love us anymore is when we do something wrong. Perhaps it is an addiction or habitual sin that causes us to conclude that we have spent our mercy. God’s grace has run out.

I remember receiving my unconditional acceptance letter to the university of my choice. I was euphoric that day as I opened the letter and read those two wonderful words—unconditional offer. This meant that no matter what I did, no matter what grades I received in high school, I was in. I was accepted. My place was secure.

This is the message I want to communicate to you today. No matter how much you think you may have messed up, fallen short, or let God down, you have a 100% acceptance rate in the kingdom of God.

I am not advocating that we all walk around practicing bad behavior and sin simply because we have a forgiving God. Not at all. I simply want to say that the height and depth, the length and breadth of love that the Father has for us is ours forever, no matter what.

There is no condition that you or I can find ourselves in that will ever cause God to withdraw His love from us. Once you have surrendered your life to Christ and remain in Him, you are secure. Rest in that knowledge today.

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:38-39).

Prayer: Father, it is hard as a human being to fathom the great love You have for us. Nevertheless, whether we can understand it or not, we thank You for it and commit to honoring that love for the whole of our lives. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
