In Love……

Reading throughout the book of Ephesians I was stopped in my tracks by these two simple words the other day. Ephesians 1:4-5 says that “In Love” God chose me and adopted me.

People have children for all sorts of reasons. Some for love, some for wanting to save a marriage, and a host of other reasons. People who adopt children usually do so for the sake of love. No matter what happens, you know the parents love them.

As we raise our children we have the big picture of what lies ahead for them. We try to protect them, and equip them. Some times they hate what we are doing for them. They do not have the big picture and it seems unfair.

How often do we feel that way with God. I don’t like___________. It seems unfair that I should have to__________. We do not have the big picture either, but one thing we can rely on is that whatever God does in our lives it is done out of “love”.

Must be a hard lesson to learn, because I keep coming back to it again and again.
