When it comes to talking about the love of God, we’re not talking about something that is trivial, trite, common, or elementary. We’re playing with real consuming fire.
Maybe you’re like me and have found yourself hanging out in a Christian subculture for a little too long. If you are like me, rattling off “Jesus loves you” comes as easy as saying “Good morning” to a complete stranger. You might mean it, but chances are that you don’t.
Maybe you just assume the love of God is always there, always real, and certainly, always deserved. Many in our culture today, if they believe that God exists at all, believe that in some way they are worthy of his love and that only a few—the Hilters, the Pol-Pots, the Mussolinis of the world—should be excluded from his love, but not us normal people with our mundane sins.
