Many people think of God as angry, just waiting for them to mess up so he can “get” them. Or they think he is distant and unconcerned about their individual lives. Or they feel like he only loves certain perfect people. Jesus came to show us the true character of God as our Father, who is especially fond of each of us, just the way we are. He says to us in John 3:16 & 17 that he didn't come to the world to condemn us, but to save us because he loves us.
“When we gather together for worship, we ought to come reaching up, starved for God, ready to feast together on the good news that, in the person of Jesus Christ, God has descended to us because we could never ascend to Him. Feasting on God's gospel together through prayer and preaching, sacrament and singing, provides us with the faith, hope, and love we need to be good-news people in a bad-news world.” -Tullian Tchividjian
