Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
And you shall be holy to Me, for I the Lord am holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be Mine. – Lev. 20:26

This is why God did it. This is why He sent Jesus to die on the Cross! He didn’t have to. He chose to. God wants you. He not only loves you; He wants you! He wants you be separate so that you can be His. He wants to redeem you to himself so badly that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die on the Cross in your place. How amazing is our God?!

As much as you want to be closer to God, He wants to be closer to you all the more. He created you, that you should be His. Open your heart. Let Him in! When you call, He will answer. You will be His people, and He will be your God.

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” – Jer. 33:3


Father, thank You for choosing to redeem me! I was so lost, but You found me. You restored my soul! You made me whole. You made a way for me to be with You for all eternity, in Jesus’ name.
