Are We Having Fun Yet? ~ September 1

Are We Having Fun Yet?

That depends

Grace and peace be yours in abundance through the knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord. 2Peter 1:2

Fortunately, God is patient with us, and He loves us even when we don’t deserve to be loved. Back when I was running away from God instead of to Him, I was not a very lovable person. He would cross my mind on occasion—usually causing me to feel pretty guilty and ashamed—but I was always able to shake the feeling, and blast on into my next misadventure. And what do I remember most about those days? I remember not being at peace. I was fighting life’s battles alone, and it was not any fun. Oh, I had some fun, but even so, I was never really happy, and never truly at peace.

But then I started learning about how much God loves us, and it made me want to learn more about Him. Now, as I learn more about Him, His peace is settling over me, and the best thing I’ve learned is His peace is a gift: a gift paid for when Jesus died on the cross; a gift called grace, wrapped in God’s love and tied with a ribbon called peace.
