Taste and see that the Lord is good!
Once you have tasted the goodness of God, it sure is hard to turn back. Unfortunately, some grow up in the church and even commit to following Jesus and turn away from Him. They experience Jesus’ goodness and faithfulness but do not keep their eyes on Him.
In Matthew 5:6, Jesus calls us to hunger and thirst for righteousness. He is saying we cannot just expect to have Jesus hand us a perfect heart without going through the process of life’s difficulties. God slowly changes our hearts through these difficulties. All the while, He calls us righteous!
Do you get that?! Jesus calls us righteous even before our hearts are made totally perfect. What a loving God we have!
Sunday at 10 am, we will look deeper into these things. We hope to see you then at Cross Connection Church.
