The choice is ours.

For all its peculiarities and unevenness, the Bible has a simple story.  God made man.  Man rejected God.  God won’t give up until he wins him back.

God will whisper.  He will shout.  He will touch and tug.  He will take away our burdens; he’ll even take away our blessings.  If there are a thousand steps between us and him, he will take all but one.  But he will leave the final one for us.  The choice is ours.

Please understand.  His goal is not to make us happy.  His goal is to make you his.  His goal is not to get you what you want; it is to get you what you need.

– Max Lucado

Let us hold firmly to the hope we have confessed, because we can trust God to do what he promised.  Hebrews 10:23
