We can’t surprise God

“A person is made right with God not by following the law,

but by trusting in Jesus Christ.”

Galatians 2:16

God is not stumped by an evil world.

He doesn’t gasp in amazement at the depth of our faith or the depth of our failures.

We can’t surprise God with our cruelties.

He knows the condition of the world . . . and loves it just the same.

For just when we find a place where God would never be (like on a cross),

we look again and there he is, in the flesh.
