Word to the Wise | “God is Crazy About Us”

There are many reasons God saves us.  He does it for His own glory.  God takes pleasure in loving the highest order of His creation.  He also saves us to satisfy His justice.  God cannot declare the guilty innocent.  That would violate the integrity of His character.  The guilty must pay the penalty.  Since God loves us, He sent His Son to pay the penalty.  When Jesus volunteered to pay our penalty, God’s love found full expression—He was free to save us.  And His justice is satisfied—the penalty was paid in full.

But, do you know the sweetest reason of all?  God loves us unconditionally.  He likes having us around.  He wants to visit and fellowship with us.  God is simply crazy about us.  If we need to talk, He will listen.  If we are hurt, He will comfort us.  He can live anywhere in the universe, and yet, He chose to live in our hearts.
