Most of us were taught that God would love us if and when we change. In fact, God loves you so that you can change. What empowers change, what makes you desirous of change is the experience of love. It is that inherent experience of love that becomes the engine of change.

―Richard Rohr

Expect change

Prayer does not
change God,
but it changes him
who prays.

–Søren Kierkegaard

His love is not earned

Legalism says God will love us if we change.
The gospel says God will change us
because He loves us.

― Tullian Tchividjian
