The awesome thing about the Bible is its repetitiveness.
- It shows that we are not alone in our sin and forgetfulness–no human in history has gotten it right all the time.
- It says over and over that God is not interested in our outward appearances. It is a constant reminder in almost every book of the Bible in some fashion.
- It reminds us constantly that faith is a HEART business, not a works business. God wants our HEART, our SOUL. He is totally cool with us doing good stuff in service to Him–but He wants–no needs- us to do in the right SPIRIT.
- It proves over and over that we are mere mortals. It proves how powerful and almighty God is.
I love that. I love that He sees each of us individually. I love that He recognizes our differences. And He celebrates them, uses those differences.
No matter the shape of your heart, God sees it. He loves it. He wants it. What a blessing–and it pumps through and flows through our very veins.
