Daniel 10 to 12: Three times Daniel is told he is “greatly beloved.”
God’ so loved the world’ is a favorite verse, and many can quote it but do they truly understand those words? God so loved, not “because you were more numerous than all the other peoples that the Lord favored and chose you—for in fact you were the least numerous of all peoples. “[Deu 7:7] He told Jeremiah that” ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love. That is why I have continued to be faithful to you.” [Jer 31:3] God loved Daniel, Jeremiah, and many others, and lastly, He loved you! How great is His love? It is beyond measure, beyond our comprehension.
Yet, He came, He lived, He died upon a cruel cross, all because He loved you!
Today you are greatly beloved. There are so many today that need this message of hope. May we be willing to share that hope with others so that they too can hear: you are greatly beloved; well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter into the joy of the Lord. Are we sharing the joy of Him who gave all that we might be given much?
