God Went to All the Trouble

August 2, 2018

God pursues us in our restlessness,

recieves us in our sinfulness,

and holds us in our brokenness.

 “This is how much God loved the world,” says John 3:16, going on to say, “God gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.”

[Let’s spend the month of August 2018 looking at some quotes, lines, memes, and other timeless ephemera — how’s that for an oxymoron? — that are too good not to share. Let’s contextualize some, let’s dissect others, and let’s simply enjoy still others. Let’s go!]

And then comes this very next verse in John 3: “God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.”

God pursues us in our restlessness,

recieves us in our sinfulness,

and holds us in our brokenness.
