Day 30: Did Jesus Come To Change God’s Mind About Us or Our Minds about God??

DSC_0086After walking around an insanely busy TIMES SQUARE in down town New York City, I saw the crowds differently than I would have 10 or 15 years ago.  I used to look at crowds as people who were rebellious against God and needed saving ……so that God would love them.  Now I see the crowds as ‘loved and accepted’ and that everything that needed to be done to make them right with God…..has been done.  My eyes see through  the lens of compassion instead of judgement. I see loved children who are blind and have a false understanding about who God is.

What is scary to me is that ‘the church’ needs to see people the same way, but it has to begin with understanding ‘why Jesus came’, and understanding how God sees us.  Enjoy this short blog from Dr. Steve McVey and will really encourage your heart.
