Earlier this week, while I sat in Bible study, something clicked in my mind. God is an infinitely powerful person, yet He chose to make finite creatures. He could have done anything He wanted, yet He instead chose to spend time and build an actual relationship with finite, mortal beings.
Then, when His creatures rejected Him, wanting nothing to do with Him, He did not wipe them out. Instead, he underwent immeasurable personal sacrifice and began a rescue mission to recover their love.
God, why would you do that for us? We don’t deserve an ounce of love from You, yet You give it to us in bucketloads.
