You think you’re unlovable.

I’m here to tell you, you are loved.

He loved you so much that while you were the sinner He died to take the penalty you deserve.

Romans 5:7-9 Christian Standard Bible

For rarely will someone die for a just person—though for a good person perhaps someone might even dare to die. But God proves his own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. How much more then, since we have now been justified by his blood, will we be saved through him from wrath.

로마서 5:7-9 Korean Living Bible

혹시 선한 사람을 위해 죽겠다고 나서는 사람은 있을는지 몰라도 의로운 사람을 위해 죽는 사람은 거의 없습니다.

그러나 우리가 아직 죄인이었을 때에 그리스도께서 우리를 위해 죽으심으로 하나님께서 우리에 대한 사랑을 나타내셨습니다.

이제 우리가 그리스도의 피로 의롭다는 인정을 받았으니 틀림없이 그분을 통해 하나님의 [a]무서운 형벌에서 구원을 받을 것입니다.

My Wood Boiler Keeping Me Warm and Toasty on a snowy day

I wasn’t going to write anything today, but I got a little teary-eyed at my wood boiler this evening.

Let me explain.

It started this morning as I was flipping through youtube videos and came across this short version of Promise:

And while I was playing it, my Bible App sent me the verse of the day:

Psalm 119:105 Christian Standard Bible

נ Nun

105 Your word is a lamp for my feet
and a light on my path.

시편 119:105Korean Living Bible

105 주의 말씀은
나를 안내하는 등불이며
내 길을 비춰 주는 빛입니다.

Maybe to remind me where to find the light.

And then at my wood boiler tonight, I had my playlist on shuffle and Speak Life by TobyMac started playing.

I like the message of that song, so I was singing along while I loaded wood into an empty firebox. There was just a tiny coal left, but I had hope that the fire would start once I added the wood. I had the firebox nearly full when that little spark ignited to a flame at the exact same time TobyMac was singing “spread the love like fire”.

I remembered my early morning message and got a little emotional.

Maybe God doesn’t talk to me in a audible voice, but he sends me messages. I titled the post Coincidences, but some call them Godincidence. Yep. A Godincidence.

Matthew 5:15-17 Christian Standard Bible

15 No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.

마태복음 5:15-16Korean Living Bible

15 등불을 켜서 그릇으로 덮어 둘 사람은 아무도 없다. 오히려 그것을 등잔대 위에 올려놓아 집 안에 있는 모든 사람에게 비치게 하지 않겠느냐?

16 이와 같이 너희 빛을 사람들 앞에 비추게 하라. 그래서 사람들이 너희 착한 행실을 보고 하늘에 계신 너희 아버지를 찬양하게 하라.

John 8:12 Christian Standard Bible

The Light of the World

12 Jesus spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.”

요한복음 8:12 Korean Living Bible

12 후에 예수님은 사람들에게 다시 말씀하셨다. “나는 세상의 빛이다. 나를 따르는 사람은 어두움에 다니지 않고 생명의 빛을 받을 것이다.”

I think my word for the Year is “Light”.

An oldie but goodie song I remember from my childhood. It only takes a spark to get a fire going.
