Good and Beautiful God: God Transforms


2 Corinthians 5:17-19 New International Version (NIV)
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.

The Good and Beautiful God – God is Good


“Jesus clearly abolished the notion that we ‘get what we deserve.’ According to Jesus, God is not in the business of balancing some eternal checkbook . . . we cannot look around the world we live in and build a case that sinners are punished and righteous people are blessed.” – James Bryan Smith

Red Letter Day: Father, Forgive Them

-C.S. Lewis
