Loved at Your Darkest-By Lisa Phillips

Romans 5:8 - KJV - But God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

I have read this verse many times in my life. It was not until I read it written out this way that I truly understood it: “I loved you at your darkest.”

Wow is all I can say! Jesus wrecked my world when I read it this way. In that moment I truly realized that God really, truly loves me. God is who He says He is and will forgive me, even with my darkest of sins.

It took me so long to realize it and to learn to carry it in my heart every day. I am enough just the way I am. I let satan bring my past up for way too long and use it against me, but I am free in Jesus.

God tells me in Ephesians 1:4 that I am chosen. “In Christ, He chose us before the world was made. He chose us in love to be His holy people - People who could stand before Him without any fault.” Without any fault - That is Jesus’ words!

God tells me in John 3:16 that I am loved. “Yes - God loved the world so much that He gave His only son, so that everyone who believes in Him would not be lost but have eternal life.” I could not even imagine giving up one of my children for someone else’s sins. God did this for me and for you.

God tells me in Ephesians 1:7 that I am forgiven. “In Christ we are made free by His blood sacrifice. We have forgiveness of sins because of God’s rich grace.” He made the ultimate sacrifice for mine and your sins. I am so thankful and blessed to be loved and forgiven by the Almighty God.
