6. Jesus is loved by the Father. The Father loves the Son (John 3:35)

There may be times in your life when you are no longer sure of God’s love for you. This happens for a Christian, especially when we have a heightened awareness of our own sins. From time to time you will ask: “How can God possibly love me when I mess up like this?”

How do you answer that? You say, “I may not be sure of God’s love for me, but I know that the Father loves the Son. And if I am in Christ, the Father’s love reaches me, even in my failure.”

7. Jesus holds all things in his hands. The Father loves the Son and has given all things into his hand (John 3:35).

Everything that concerns you today is in the hand of Jesus—your joys, your sorrows, your work, your home, your friends, your loved ones, your life, your death, and your eternity. What this means is that nothing can touch you, unless it has first passed through the hands of the Son of God, who loved you and gave himself for you.

No wonder we worship and adore Jesus—He came from above. He gave testimony as a witness. He was sent by the Father. He spoke the words of God. He has the Spirit without measure. He is loved by the Father. He holds all things in his hands. There is no one else who has ever lived about whom these seven things could be said. This is the glory and wonder of Jesus Christ.

Take a moment and worship the Lord Jesus Christ for who he is.
