How We Talk About God: FOR

What do cows, enemies, prodigals, wanderers, disciples and heretics have in common?

God is FOR them all, which is a way of saying God is for us.

Which means…

God never, ever quits in desiring them. (Okay, the cows may be a stretch.) God never gives up hope that they’ll turn around and be open to God’s ways…

but also doesn’t mean…

God will do the turning around for us.

The Christian life is all about growing in our realization of and response to the hardcore reality that God is for us and wants us to be for God in return.
