"But God proves his love for us in that while we were still sinners Christ died for us."
God feels that we are worth dying for. And not some idealized, simonized version of us, but the real us--in our sorry, sinful state. That, really, is quite incredible, isn't it? It urges us to try to understand this unconditional love of God, that doesn't fit into our human brand of justice. In our minds, people should get what they deserve. In God's mind, love is bigger than any sin. The latter is so outrageous it is hard for us to understand. This weekend, we will have a whole extra hour! Let's spend it sitting in the stillness, contemplating this amazing love that God has for us...and wondering how we can share that love with others...love, heidi
