me, if you look at stuff on the internet and read through some devotionals and bible studies, you'll run across teaching that focuses constantly on our sinfulness and yes, every human is prone to sinfulness. But what is often left out is the good news of God's grace toward us and his life in us. It drives me nuts when I see applications and women's bible studies that only focus on avoiding sin in your life. No wonder many women look at their lives which may be very messy compared to others and think to themselves. God must not like me as much as he does her. Have you ever thought that way? Then you resign yourself to your fate because you don't deserve better or you do as many good deeds as you possibly can to try to get back into God's good favor. So he'll love you again. Stop it. Remember your treasure chest in christ filled with beautiful things that God has given to you as his adopted daughter. In the last podcast we fingered some of those jewels that you're given, chosen to be holy and blameless, forgiven of all sin, lavish with grace, sealed by the Holy Spirit guaranteeing your inheritance now and later. And here's another jewel that really answers that question. What does God think about me? This blessing jewels should make your heart sore. It's found in Ephesians chapter five verses one and two follow God's example. Therefore as dearly loved Children and walk in the way of love just as christ loved us and gave himself up for us. The answer is that you my christian sister, our brother, whoever is listening you are dearly loved by God and the treasure you have in God who loves you dearly is more powerful and valuable than anything you could substitute for him. You and I are dearly loved by our God and by our savior, jesus christ and our God who loves you dearly and has given you all those blessing jewels, also wants a relationship with you. So he's given humans another gift that no other creature has the gift of conversation. And through this gift you and I can enjoy a relationship with this wonderful God who loves us dearly studies say that women have About 20,000 words to use up each day. The God of the Universe wants to hear some of those from us. Whether thinking them are speaking them. Isn't that amazing? Using our words in conversation with God is called prayer. Prayer is simply conversation with someone who loves you dearly.
