Lord, thank you for choosing us, even when we rejected You. Thank You for the sacrifice of laying down Your life for us, knowing that some of us would linger in choosing You as the Lord of our lives, while others of us would never choose You at all. Your endless and unconditional love overwhelms me and I am grateful that You have extended the opportunity of living the rest of my life in communion with You. In Jesus’s name, Amen.
10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.
