Years ago in our Bible study (that grew into a church), we sang a little chorus. I have no idea who wrote it or where it came from. Like a lot of the songs we sang back then, someone heard it somewhere and shared it wherever they went next. Anyway, we heard it, learned it, and sang it to one another. It’s a simple song, but a song with one of the most profound truths imaginable–the kind of truth that will, quite literally, set you free, if you take it to heart. It’s a song about God’s love. Here’s the lyrics for you to muse upon.
He loves you just the way you are today,
And much too much to let you stay that way.
And when you’ve changed from what you were before,
He will not love you one bit more.
May you grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ–and know his love that is more than sufficient for all of your needs.
