In the dictionary, the word beloved is defined as a loved one. How great is it that we know we are Yah’s (the Lord’s) loved ones! But do we deserve such a title?
Yeshua (Jesus) suffered so much agony on the cross. He went through tremendous pain so we could be called His beloved.
But don’t we take that for granted?
Sure, we know we are children of the King. But that’s just about as far as it goes. We don’t really contemplate we are Yah’s loved ones. That He would love filthy sinners.
Glory be the Yehovah (the Lord)!
To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. –Ephesians 1:6
