Known and loved

The last time I shared, I explored how we can know someone deeply….and yet not know them!

Today, I share thoughts on being known – truly known – and on being loved, even as we are. There are multiple assurances from God that we are known by Him:

But you, O Lord, know meyou see me, and test my heart toward you (Jeremiah 12:3)

My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me (John 10:27).

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known (1 Corinthians 13:12).

And there are abundant promises of God’s love for us. These two promises were proclaimed during very hard times, making them treasured all the more :

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22, 23)

I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you. (Jeremiah 31:3)

I invite you to consider what it means to be both known, and loved in this contemporary song by Tauren Wells.
