God’s love is broad. But how broad? When you think about your worst enemy, the person you despise the most, God’s love is redemptive and passionate in moving toward them. Who is it for you? An ex-spouse? A politician? A business partner? A parent? A terrorist? An abortionist?
As much as it’s good to celebrate, remember, and hold onto the fact that God loves us – heck, let’s make it very personal: that God loves ME – it’s crucial for us in ministry and in life to realize, celebrate, remember, and hold onto the fact that God loves that person too (whoever that person is).
Forgetting that is forgetting the breadth of God’s love, one thing that is never good to forget. Why? Because we were once that person to God, now redeemed by the blood of Jesus.
But that’s just me thinking thoughts…
