God’s Beloved

In his writings, Henri Nouwen warns against these three lies we believe: I am what I do. I am what I have. I am what others think and say. Nouwen says the way to overcome these three lies is to remember this truth: I am God’s beloved. It is my hope and prayer that at Christmas we will be reminded yet again that we are God’s beloved. The message of that baby, the Word become flesh, is unmistakable. God loves me. God loves the world.

  1. “..and they shall call his name ‘Immanuel’ (which means God with us).” Matt 1:23. Whenever I see a newborn babe in all its purity, it reminds me that indeed, God is with us – and He loves us.
