God’s long history with humankind has always had one goal: to bring each person into a relationship with Him and prepare us to live our everyday life following the model of Jesus – to love like Him. What does that look like? It starts with our seeking this, longing to be like Him, loving Him for what His obedient sacrifice. In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus tells us plainly how to love like Him–forgive, work with the Spirit, give generously of what we have been given, love those who reject us, seek to get rid of our self-righteous thinking. So why change? Because we are His message to hurting people need to know how much God loves them.
