Have You Got Your Degree Yet? ~ March 26

Have You Got Your Degree Yet?

Maybe you should stop trying to earn it

You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy. Hebrews 1:9

This statement pertains to Jesus; with regard to men, there are no degrees of God’s love, and we don’t have to earn His love. When God sent His Son to die on the cross and then rise and ascend to heaven, He made a simple statement; I love you all, unconditionally, just as you are.

No one is perfect; no one will ever be perfect; yet in God’s eyes, we are without blemish. By the shed blood of His precious Son, He has anointed us with the oil of joy—the Holy Spirit. When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God’s Spirit enters into us, and we become one with Him. His love is within us, and if we return His love and seek Him, His love radiates from us to others.

We don’t have to go out each day and make it our job to try and love everyone; our job is to love God. I believe if we concentrate on God and loving God, we will not be able to go into the world without His love in our every word and action. We will—as He intended—be like Him. He created us in His image and His image—His essence—is love.
