To me, this is one of the most beautiful love notes ever written, and the love of God for the human race, the most amazing love story ever recorded! I am awed by the intimacy, as God describes His love for us. He knows each one of us. He addresses us by name. He refers to us as His own. He reminds us that we have no need to be afraid, because he bought us with the blood of His Son. If He sacrificed His Son for us, is there anything he will not do?
Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.
