As a Christian living in this fallen world I will be perpetually reminded of the sweet, sweet truths of the Gospel and the character of God throughout my life. But I am learning that each time I come across familiar scripture God peels back another layer and gives me a deeper understanding of the theological truths behind His character, providing more depth in my relationship with Him.
Francis Chan writes, “We need reminders about God’s goodness. We are programmed to focus on what we don’t have, bombarded multiple times throughout the day with what we need to buy that will make us feel happier or sexier or more at peace. This dissatisfaction transfers over to our thinking about God. We forget that we already have everything we need in Him. Because we don’t often think about the reality of who God is, we quickly forget that He is worthy to be worshipped and loved.”
I pray that this is an encouragement to all who read!
