He loves the us us. As-is — rough patches and all.
We can’t do a single thing that will make Him love us any more. And we can’t do a single thing that will make Him love us any less.
Jesus — Son of God who is love — died for us while we were yet sinners.
We, the imperfect, defective, blemished. Rescued by the spotless Lamb.
Yet, 2,000 years later, we continue to chase the invisible standard. We incline our ear to the yammering inner critic, instead of the voice of a loving Father. A PERFECT Father, who loves imperfect us just because He wants to.
He declared us — the broken ones — not only good, but VERY good.
Yesterday, I delivered a presentation to a group of beautiful, broken women on ways to quiet our inner critics and let go of the invisible standard — something I’m still learning how to do. Below, you’ll find the video I created for the presentation. It is set to Natalie Grant’s “Perfect People.”
This weekend, may we find ourselves listening to the voice of a Perfect God!
