God our Father loves us. He treats us with undeserved grace and he has given us eternal comfort, hope and love through grace. 2 Thessalonians 2:16
The scriptures this week again focus our attention on God’s love for us, the limitlessness of God’s love.
The Creator’s yearning to redeem all of his creation.
Each one of us was created by God, chosen and loved by God. And we will be redeemed by God, not because of our good deeds because we are loved.
God does not want blind obedience, or servants out of fear.
It our creativity, our ability to love and forgive, our willingness to help each other, our living through him that is desired.
For he is not a God of the dead, but of the living for all live through him. Luke 20:28.
Lectionary readings: Job 19:23-27 a, Psalm 17:1-9, 2 Thessalonian 2:1-5, 13-17, Luke 20:27-38.
