"This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is changing lives everywhere, just as it changed yours that very first day you heard and understood the truth about God's great kindness to sinners." (Colossians 1:6)
God loves you! He loves you so much that He accomplished the impossible
to deliver you from your sins. Jesus died, paying the steep price for
your mistakes. Jesus rose again, empowering you to life an abundant
life through His life. He is, in fact, kind to sinners like you and me.
Today is my oldest son's 23rd birthday and I'm quite emotional over the
fact that he is in Colorado while I am in Texas. For most of the years
of his life, Jaren and I would go to an amusement park to celebrate his
birthday--Just him and me. I am missing that experience today. I am
missing him today. In the same way, God longs to spend time with us
today. It's not that He needs us to do anything. It's not that He needs
us at all. He simply loves us--and thus He is kind!
