You are Invited

(Jesus) came to that which was His own, but His own did not receive Him. John 1:11

Today you are invited to consider how these words make you feel.  Think about the love Jesus has, for you; for His sacrifice as He left heaven and came down as a tiny baby, for you; for His gift of His life as He died on the cross, for you. For His glorious resurrection, for you, that you may have eternal life. And yet there are times when we turn our backs on Him and go our own way. Where are you at the moment? Are your arms open wide to receive Jesus and walk closely with Him, hand in hand? Or are you pushing Him away? What do you want to say to Him about your relationship with Him today? How does He reply?

May God bless you as you welcome Him into your day, however close or far away you have been to Him recently.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
