How would your life change if you genuinely began to believe that God is holy and transcendent, yet he condescends to pursue you?
Imagine Jesus smiling at you with compassion.
Imagine Jesus saying, "I love you so much."
Jesus does not use shame as a motivational tool. He wants you to be free.
He wants you to be confident in his compassion, not to work harder to
earn what he has freely given you.
He wants you to know him. He wants you to lean into his love.
If you feel like you have just been working hard to be good enough for God to accept you, if you have difficulty leaning freely into the unconditional love of Jesus, we want to speak a blessing from Ephesians 3:19 over you in Jesus' name.
May you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
