God is crazy about you!

Ever doubt if you are good enough for God? You are not alone. It is a doubt shared by most of humanity. Why would a holy, perfect Being accept little ole me? Yet this is the scandal of the Gospel: God accepts us the way we are. No clean up necessary! The Psalmist understood this when he wrote,

But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God;

I trust in God’s unfailing love forever and ever. – Psalm 52:8

Anything we think we can bring to convince God to love us diminishes the great Gift. God is crazy about you and me! May this truth sink deep into our souls today. – Ron Friesen
