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.

– Henri Nouwen

Artist – Jorge Cocco

One clear message

christ-and-the-children

Everything Jesus said
and did and suffered
is nothing else but a chain
of pointers that keep saying
one thing over again:
“The Father is
seeking you.”

It started with Him

Standing on fence

We could not seek God at all,
if he had not already found us;
we could not love him,
if he had not first loved us . . .

–Helmut Thielicke, (1908 – 1986)
