Good News


Psalm 136:1

Praise the Lord, who is so good; God’s love endures forever.

We all get caught up in a false premise that we need to earn God’s love. We get caught up in a worthiness contest…a game we play to win God’s favor. This is an illusion. Or should I say delusion. God loved you before you were born, loves you now, and will love you forever. In each moment God’s love is being poured out in and through all things. It cannot be withheld because that’s what God does…fills all things with love…even when it’s hard to see and feel it. Our “sinfulness”…our imperfection…does not diminish God’s ability to love us. That’s exactly how we come to know what unconditional Love is! (God made us imperfect, right?) It is through our imperfection that we come to know Love. It happens over and over and over throughout the bible. Despite the sinful people…God relentlessly pursues them. Then to make it quite clear…Jesus forgives and loves those who have nailed Him to the cross. What more proof do you need that God’s love never ends! That is Good News and reason to give thanks!
