Unpack Your Bags

Today’s devotional by Max Lucado – reposted from Devotionals Daily – assures us that we are safe with God. We may leave His family, but He will never kick us out. We can walk in peace knowing we have a forever home.

“… Maybe you question your place in God’s family. You fear His impending rejection. You wrestle with doubt-lacedjohn-10-28-400x400questions: Am I really in God’s family? What if God changes His mind? Reverses His acceptance? Lord knows, He has reason to do so. We press forward only to fall back. We renew our resolve only to stumble again.

We wonder, Will God turn me out?

Boyfriends do. Employers do. Coaches kick players off the team. Teachers expel students from school. Parents give birth to children and abandon them at bus stations. How do we know God won’t do the same? What if he changes His mind about us? After all, He is holy and pure, and we are anything but. Is it safe to unpack our bags?

God answered this question at the Cross. When Jesus died, the heavenly vote was forever cast in your favor and mine. He declared for all to hear, “This child is my child. My covenant will never change.”
