I have some friends who are choosing to start a new or refreshed relationship with God.
Those decisions made me think of these wise works:
“To live as God’s child is to know, at this very instant, that you are loved by your Maker
– NOT because you try to please God and succeed,
– OR fail to please God and apologize,
– BUT because God wants to be your Father. Nothing more.
All your efforts to win God’s affection are unnecessary.
All your fears of losing God’s affection are needless.
You can no more make God want you than you can convince God to abandon you. The adoption is irreversible.” 1
Welcome to the family!
