God made His love manifest among us this way, by sending His only Son into the world, so that we might live through Him. 1 John 4:9
Social media gives the false impression we all live quite manifest lives. Everything we do is out there. In pictures. In words. This devotion will even be posted on Facebook. For all our desire to put ourselves out there, do people really know us? In reality, doesn’t your social media profile hide what you don’t want revealed? (Thankfully) We never allow ourselves to be fully exposed.
We are, however, unmasked before our Creator. The good, the bad, and the ugly are all equally on display before the One who fashioned you. That’s quite scary. Our lives often showcase darkness, discord, and detachment. God sent His Son into the world so that we would abandon darkness and live through Him. The One who has seen all you’ve done shows you the boundlessness of His love for you!
Jesus, thank you for loving me. Amen.
