Preparing for Easter ~ Mark of God's Love


[God...made a lasting mark through the sacrifice of Jesus. Hebrews 13:20 MSG
During this season of reflection and renewal, join me, and let's explore the visible evidence that identifies us as faithful followers of Jesus. Can others see Jesus in our lives? ~ Donna Oswalt]

Everything GOD does is right the trademark on all His works is love. 
Psalm 145:17 The Message

Read all of Psalm 145 in The Message and discover the joy of praising God. There are no boundaries to His greatness (vs 3). God’s goodness and generosity overflow from generation to generation; He is both magnificent and marvelous. God is . . . rich in love, and everything He does is suffused with grace (vs 8-9). Creation and creatures applaud GOD (vs 10), and we are to praise His holy splendor. Most of all, God’s love is the trademark on all His works. Ephesians 2:10 reminds us: He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join Him in the work He does, the good work He has gotten ready for us to do. He stamps ‘His LOVE’ on all that come to Jesus.  As His child, I bear the mark of His Love. 
  • Does it show? Do others know that God loves me?
  • What good work does God have for me? Will my obedience bear Gods trademark?
Creator God, I do not have enough words to describe Your great power and presence, goodness and generosity. My soul stands in silence before You. Such Glorious Love brings me to my knees. Let me be worthy of the work You have chosen for me. May my life bear your great mark of love! – dho
