If there was one truth I could pass along to everyone that I come into contact with, it would be this:
For God SO LOVED the world.
If that’s you, I desperately want you to know that God will always fight for you with a never-ending, never-changing love. I have heard it explained like this: When they caught the woman in adultery, the Pharisees stood up for something they believed. But Jesus stood up for someone He loved.
Too often, people claim the name of Jesus while ignoring the ways of Jesus. We get it wrong. We misrepresent Him. Because Jesus didn’t come to affirm the self-righteous or pat the back of the religious.
He came to bring good news to the poor.
To heal the brokenheared.
To declare freedom to the captives.
To recover sight to the blind.
To deliver the oppressed.
He came because God so loved His broken, sinful people that He couldn’t let them continue living in a world that couldn’t save them.
“For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
