Thought for the week (from Sunday’s sermon)

Thought for the Week | Roots |

God loves Jesus for who he is and not what he does.  And – amazingly and wonderfully – God loves us in just the same way, for who we are – God’s own beloved children – and definitely not because of what we have or have not done or even what we might do in the future. God’s love is freely given.  And it crosses the great gap between heaven and earth to meet us where we are.
