That I May Know Him

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. ~ 1 John 5:20 (KJV)

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

Because He delighted in me

In Genesis 1:31, the Bible tells us that “God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good”. He looked back at all His creation and looked at it with delight. We are His creation; the work of His hands and thus, God takes special delight in us. We are so precious to Him that He even bothered redeeming us back!! If we were of no value to Him, He wouldn’t have bothered reconciling us back to Him. But He went as far as purchasing us back with His own blood. That’s a heavy price to pay.

~In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins. 1 Cor 1:14

I still don’t really understand how we could bring great joy and delight to His Heart. But that’s a Bible truth, He really does delight in His creation. Even David understood that because in Psalm 18:19, he writes: “he delivered me, because he delighted in me”. That applies to us today – it applies to me. I can say that when my life was a chaotic mess and I was desperate, when sin had a stronghold on me, Jesus Christ came and rescued me, because He delighted in me.

~But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8

I am basking in God’s love for me. While I was yet a sinner, Christ died for me. While I was yet a sinner, the Lord Jesus Christ rescued me from the wages of sin, death and gave me a special gift, eternal life. And what did I do to earn this gift? Nothing. It cost me absolutely nothing, but it cost Him his own blood. And He did it all because He delighted in me, because He loved me. When someone delights in you and loves you, it’s easy to love that person back. That’s why today I delight in Him and that’s why I love Him. Because He first loved me…because He first delighted in me!

~We love him, because he first loved us. 1 John 4:19
