Five Minute Friday – My Beloved

He is the Beloved Son of God
Christ Jesus
In Whom the Father is well pleased
His is my Beloved Savior
Who laid His glory aside
In order to become a man, my Kinsman
He is my beloved Sin Bearer
He paid the penalty for my sin
So that my sin debt was marked paid in full
He is my Beloved Redeemer
He ransomed my soul
From the slaved master called sin
He is my Beloved in Whom I found freedom
Freedom from the guilt of sin, the power of sin
One day from the presence of sin
He is my Beloved God
Who dares to call this sinner His beloved bride
One day He will take me home to a place He has prepared

Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God!  Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.  Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.  And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.  1 John 3:1-3

It’s another Saturday morn and I participating in Lisa-Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to her website “Lisa Jo Baker Tales from a Gypsy Mama”.  Be sure to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.

  1. Thanks for doing this, Susan. I'm a late contributor this time, so I was glad to find I'm not the only one who does Friday's work on Saturday.The verse at the top of your post is the one that came to mind for me when I read the word "beloved" as our prompt. Being loved by our Beloved makes all the difference, doesn't it? I enjoyed your reflections on that. I hope you'll get a chance to read my thoughts, too.
