Floating Through the Reeds

But the very same God who created Moses and orchestrated this whole survival plan did the same for you. Chances are, your story is less dramatic. That doesn't make it less important or less touched by God. Think of all the things that you've overcome, that could've destroyed you, that you could've succumbed to. But you prevailed with God's help, whether you recognize it or not, whether you acknowledge it or not. All the things that could've defeated you and you're still standing. You're a baby floating through the reeds of the Nile as much as Moses was.

Revisiting the Mount

The first step to being gospel-centered is knowing the gospel and the key players in it, and this is achieved by reading the Gospels. In doing this, we know the life and sacrifice of Jesus firsthand. We don't rely on what we hear from others, which can be distorted or lacking insight. We can know Jesus through scripture just as we come to know Him in our own lives. We go deeper, and it becomes harder to lose sight of Him. To know Him is to want to know Him more, and we get that in a large part from reading the Gospels.

Turtles, Birds, and Lilies

How much does God love us? He gave us everything. He made everything and then told us to look after it. He saw how lovely, how intricate all of creation was and then decided to make us, that we, of all creatures, would complete it. And after millennia of us collectively and consistently messing up, He still loves us most.

Love for One Another

God presents Himself to us daily in different ways but always in love. It could be hearing a song that you like and haven't heard in a while or standing a long time in a checkout line because if you left sooner, you'd be in a wreck or someone giving you a compliment when you really needed to hear it. All of these are examples of acts of love from God, whether we recognize it or not.
