“warmly adored”

“my trip had been a cry for God’s attention. i had wanted Him to notice me and then to love me for my grandiose and sacrificial endeavors. i had deemed my radical itinerary prerequisite for divine favor.

“no such odyssey was required.

“that journey has already been completed by Jesus, and on our behalf. His port of entry was the Incarnation, the points of departure the cross and empty tomb. through the work of Jesus, we are more than noticed by God. We are warmly adored and beaming in the light of divine favor and delight.”

— andrew byers, “we need more boring Christians,” relevant magazine, march/april 2012
