Five Minute Friday: Nothing
Nothing can separate us from the love of God we have in Christ Jesus.
I have nothing to bring to the table. I come empty-handed. He holds everything in His arms. He lavished everything on me. He showers me with gifts from above. He takes away my nothing-ness and fills me with His everything.
Nothing but the blood of Jesus can wash away my sin; nothing but the blood of Jesus can make me whole again.
There was nothing in Him to attract us to Him. A man of sorrows, acquainted with suffering. He gave up everything to become nothing so we could have everything.
And how can I do anything but lay down everything I have (which all amounts to nothing), to take up my cross and gain nothing for myself in this world, but everything for Him and in Him for all eternity.
Nothing can snatch me out of His hands.
