Unfathomable Love

When I was expecting my second child, I didn’t know whether I would have a boy or a girl. But somehow I began thinking of my unborn child as “Teddy.” I’d tell my husband, “Teddy kicked a lot today,” or “Teddy has the hiccups,” or “Teddy must be sleeping.” I didn’t think of the baby as an indefinite “it.” Instead, he was “Teddy”—a cuddly, lovable, energetic little bundle I could hardly wait to meet.

I wasn’t surprised at all when my baby turned out to be a cuddly, lovable, energetic little boy. Of course we called him Teddy!

This experience helped me understand more about how Jesus feels about me. Even before I was born, He loved me and made plans for me. It’s amazing to realize that thousands of years ago, Jesus spoke of me by name, and made plans to rescue me from the clutches of sin. And then He actually came to this earth to redeem me! He died for me so that I wouldn’t have to pay the price for my own sins.

Jesus went way beyond the most intense love any mother has felt for her child. How can He love me so much? I don’t know, but I’ll be eternally grateful.
