The God Who Comes Running

God is the father who watches and waits for his children, runs out to meet them, embraces them, pleads with them, and begs and urges them to come home.

It might sound strange, but God wants to find us as much, if not more, than we want to find God.

In step with the Spirit

Autumn Mist Wallpaper__yvt2

How great and lovely, then, is the work of the Spirit! He unites us to the Son so that the Father’s love for the Son also encompasses us; he draws us to share the Father’s own enjoyment of the Son; and he causes us to share the Son’s delight in the Father. What could be more delicious than to keep in step with a Spirit whose purpose is that?

Delighting in the Trinity

More than galaxies

It is a gracious thing
in our relationship
with the heavenly Father
to find that He loves us
for ourselves and
values our love more
than galaxies of
new created worlds.

–A. W. Tozer
(1897-1963)
