A spotlight reveals only what is before it; everything else is cast into darkness. So is God’s love for his people. It is a love of great tenderness and preference. For some reason known only to God, this saving love focused as a spotlight upon this little, insignificant people; all other nations were outside in the darkness.
The ultimate plan of God is to create a new people, born from the open side of his only Son, for whom God has a love of tenderness and preference. The Son’s embrace on the cross is worldwide. No one from any nation, people, or race is excluded from this embrace. In Jesus, God has a preferential love for everyone.
God has simply decided to love you. Nothing you do can change that. Only live in the spotlight of God’s love shining from the cross.
