Any road to reach you

I think that the good news of Jesus and his love is this simple: Jesus will go down any road to meet up with you... be it the road of fundamental Christianity, an LSD trip, or the pathway that led to your unbelief in him or any other god. He will do that for one reason: He freaking loves you. In the book The Furious Longing of God, Brennan Manning wrote, “Christians find it easier to believe that God exists than that God loves them.” It's time to start believing that we are included in the union of the love of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. There is no belief that matters more and no other way to be the love of Jesus to those who need love now.

Remember? Jesus is the God who one time met a woman at a well. She had left five husbands behind. The race of people she belonged to was the lowest of the low in the culture of that time and place. She was so wounded in her spirit that her heart had grown hard with callouses to survive the days. Jesus traveled all the way to her part of the country to wait for her at the well because he loved her. He singled her out and told her all she ever did. He offered her the very breath of Life - a life of not having to hide any more. He offered her the reality of living in Love and of being known. He told her who he was. Why her?

Why me?

Why you?

Because we matter to him. It's that simple. You matter to him and you are loved.
