WE may not know each other personally! Maybe we have never even met before...but I want you to know something! YOU MATTER TO ME! I care about you! You, yes you...the one looking around them to see who I am talking about...YOU!
Why? Why would someone who hasn't even met you before feel the need to tell you that you MATTER to them? That you are IMPORTANT? Honestly, because I don't feel like enough people hear this simple fact often enough! I don't think that people really believe they are IMPORTANT! Even I have days, when I wonder...who really cares?
But instead of sitting in a corner, feeling sorry for myself (or yourself), you can definitely be confident in knowing that I am not the only one that cares about you! There is a person much bigger, much more loving, much more powerful, much more full of compassion...than me...that cares about you!
His name is JESUS!
Obviously, you guys know that I am not afraid to share...and if you're offended...go ahead and stop reading! But I really feel led to encourage my readers right now about this! Those of you who need a word of encouragement...who need a pat on the back...who need a hug (cause you haven't had one in a really long time)...who need to know they are worth something to someone...KEEP READING!!
Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God
I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.
being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
I can do everything through him who gives me strength.
YOU MATTER TO ME...
because if you are "in Christ", we are "FAMILY"...and FAMILY matters SO MUCH to me!
And even if you aren't there yet...maybe GOD is still working on your heart...know that you are more loved and cared about than you could ever imagine!
