Our Father

Look at God's love for us:
while we still were sinners Christ died for us. —Romans 5.8

Jesus didn't go get himself killed 

so he'd be punished for our sin instead of us.

Our sin is our inability to trust God. 

In our distrust we try to make and keep life for ourselves,

and hurt others in the process.

In love God is willing to stand in the path of our violence

with forgiveness.

God's love changes us, setting us free 

from our distrust and violence.

Jesus embodies that love, even though we kill him,

offering it before we're willing to accept it. 

Let God love you. 

Forget all notions of your deserving.

Just allow yourself to be God's Beloved:

a sinner, yes, but beloved. Deeply loved. 

That's all you need.

Let yourself be loved,

and let the love take over.
