Big Daddy Weave 'Redeemed' Devotional

Hey friends, please check out the following exclusive guest devotional from Big Daddy Weave about their hit song, "Redeemed!" -- John (JFH)

Luke 10:27 - He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ” New International Version (NIV)

In this verse, Jesus condenses all of the commandments.  Love the Lord your God with everything you are.  I've always tried my best, and I always just assumed that loving my neighbor as myself meant that I was supposed to treat others well.  I always breezed over and never really paid much attention to the loving myself part.  In fact, I can't remember hearing anything about that from the pulpit growing up in church either.  I heard plenty about how much God loved me but never anything about how I was supposed to see myself.  I've struggled for so many years of my life with personal acceptance and self worth.  At a really low point in that battle about two years ago, the Lord began to set some things straight.  As I cried out to Him, He interrupted my pity party by impressing on my heart, "Why don't you let me tell you what I think about you for a change?"  He began to flood my heart and mind with things that He, the King of the universe, likes about me!  The Lord redefined humility for me that day.  I'd always thought being humble was this self-depreciating thing.  I now know that humility is simply agreeing with what ever God says about anything.  And for those of us who are His children, He says we are redeemed by His blood alone.  So who are we to argue with the God of everything?  If I'm going to love God with all my heart and love other people the way He wants me too, I have to also love and accept myself the way that He does. ~ Mike Weaver, Big Daddy Weave
