Deut 14:2 and Luke 5:9 "Beyond Human Comprehension" March 28
It is beyond my human comprehension that we are chosen to be treasured possessions out of everyone in the world. There is no language to describe the Matchless Beauty and Unparalleled Love that God has for each of us, no matter what we have done. He says: Deut 14:2 For you are a people holy to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for his treasured possession, out of all the peoples who are on the face of the earth. There. That's simply amazing. So where do I go with that? Luke 5:9 came to my mind this morning as I had such an evil thought toward a friend pop into my mind. "Depart from me, for I am a sinful man." I'm awestruck that Peter would say that about his story. I mean, he had been fishing all night long and had caught nothing. Peter was the pro at fishing, right? Yet, he offered his poverty to his LORD who made something big out of it. May we give to God out of what we have with full hearts.
