Our Makers Mark

We read a verse yesterday in church that reminded me of a makers mark. Jesus said we would be known for following Him by the way we love. Maybe you are like me and have felt your “mark” has gotten a bit tarnished. And then, as only our Maker can do, He takes a cloth of grace, maybe the end of His robe, wipes away our tears, bandages our wounds and cares for us as they heal. Somewhere in the process, He reminds us of how He has already washed away our sins and in all the shame we hide our true selves. He keeps working in His tender way until we realize we are restored and the evidence is in how we love. When others get close they see our Makers Mark, nothing to earn and nothing to perform, just loved.
