Jesus Is Not Anxious About You
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
-- John 15 : 13
Jesus is not anxious about you. Consider the following words that Cody pointed us to on Sunday.
Meister Eckhardt: "God knows me more than I know myself."
Richard Rhor: "When we go into the Presence, we find someone not against us, but someone who is definitely for us... Someone else is holding me. Someone is believing in me. Someone is for me more than I am for myself. Someone is with me more than I am with myself."
Jesus: "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends."
Think about that. God knows you and is with you more than you know and are with yourself.
And he STILL came to die for you.
He is not anxious about you. He already knows it all. He knows the worst of you and the best of you. And he still pursues you. What if you let him?
