“Therefore the LORD longs to be gracious to you, And therefore He waits on high to have compassion on you. For the LORD is a God of justice; How blessed are all those who long for Him.”
Gods pursuit of humanity is a long story. Satan wanted centerstage and his plan is to ruin our relationship with God. Selfishness, and pride take us to a point of bitterness, anger and murder. But God keeps pursuing his prize creation by clothing himself as a bagger and renounces his throne in order to win our hearts. The incarnation the life and death and resurrection of Jesus answers the question once and for all, “what is God’s heart toward me?”
Gods heart races for us! What about our heart for Him?
