There are some who view God as this distant ruler sitting high waiting to condemn mankind. But, the truth is that God wants to be intimately close to us. So much so that, in spite of His perfect nature that cannot tolerate sin, He found a flawless way to reconcile Himself back to us. He used a part of Himself, God the Son (Jesus), as the perfect sacrifice so that we can be made righteous in His sight. All because He wants a personal relationship with us.

God loves us absolutely, irrevocably, and unconditionally. And, once we accept Jesus as our Savior (believe that He is the Son of God Who died and rose again that we might spend eternity with Him), He positions us to commune with Him. He even gave us another part of Himself, the Holy Spirit, to help us live optimally here on earth. We have the ultimate counselor in Him because He instructs us with past, present, future, and all-knowing advice. We can’t go wrong with that, but even if we do miss it, God has given us grace that covers our shortcomings. Get to know this awesome, loving God today.

2 Corinthians 5: 18 “All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 that is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.”
