I just finished the book (for the second time) Redeeming Love, by Francine Rivers today. It was amazing. Such a good story. I was crying by the end of it because it just really shows God’s love in such an awesome way. It’s actually a retelling of the book of Hosea and it is SO good.
After finishing it, I was just thinking about how much we are like Gomer (Hosea’s wife) in how we reject and turn away from God. But God, knowing all of our past, our failures, our weaknesses….chose us and loves us anyways, despite our rebellious hearts. It blows me away to think of all that God did for us in sending Jesus. Wow.
Some of us kids at church put together some quotes to put on the wall of the youth room and the one that I did is this:
God didn’t look down from Heaven and see our need, and shed a tear- send a tract- or write a check- He sent His Son. ~Brad Buser
I thought that was really good though. God is good!
