God goes to great lengths to reach us, and Christ commissioned the church to be His witnesses throughout the whole world. The message is one of good news which is for all people that there is a Savior, Christ the Lord.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

After Thought

When I had mired myself in so many mistakes I was amazed how God loved me out of the mess I had made. He called to me to come to Him, and like the owner of this dog, loved and provided a way to become clean.

Psalm 38:8

Psalm 38:8

I am exhausted and completely crushed. My groans come from an anguished heart.

After Thought

David was at a very low point in his life and he knew where to go. Absent of strength and overwhelmed by the circumstances of life he called out to God to take charge. He didn't let his feelings rule the day, but poured them out to the Lord and trusted in Him.
