You Are Wanted

you-are-wanted

You are wanted! Christ came to this earth so that He could draw all to Himself to have a relationship with Him (John 12:32).

Many of you have been in relationships where the other person made you feel unwanted:

  • Maybe you were born into a family that didn’t really want you, so you never felt a sense of belonging.
  • Maybe you have experienced peer relationships at school where you were made to feel left out.
  • Maybe you have experienced a broken marriage where there was nothing you could do to put together the pieces.
  • I know many women who have never felt wanted physically by their husbands. Their husbands consider them unattractive.

This rejection can be devastating, especially when it comes from people you love. But I want you to know Someone who will never reject you. That person is Jesus Christ. “All those the Father gives Me will come to Me, and whoever comes to Me I will never drive away.” John 6:37 NIV

It doesn’t matter if you have been made to feel unwanted by loved ones in your life. Because the One who truly matters—the Creator and Sustainer of the universe—wants us for Himself! He wants a relationship with us!

1 Timothy 2:4 tells us that God “wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”

Jeremiah 31:3 says “I have loved you with an everlasting love.”

God says He will never leave you or forsake you in Deuteronomy 31:6.

Isaiah 41:10 ESV says, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”

So He not only draws us to Himself because He wants us but here are some of the things He provides us with:

  • His everlasting love
  • His presence
  • His strength
  • His help
  • His upholding

wanted

We don’t ever have to feel rejected. Rejection is something the enemy uses in our lives to make us feel like we are worthless when the opposite is true! We have value in Christ!

Don’t let the enemy lead you to believe that you are worthless if Christ says you are loved and that He wants you for Himself. Just let that sink in for a moment… Christ values you and wants you!

    As my Dad once said, all that Christ went through on Calvary… He would have done that even if I was the only sinner on earth. What marvelous love He gives to us as individuals!
    In Christ,
