Two steps

β€œThe good news of the Gospels is that Jesus dealt with his followers who failed with two directives: first, he told them they did wrong…. Jesus always followed the first directive with the second directive, the word of grace and forgiveness: after his disciples failed, he urged them to resume following him again.” (p 202)

β€œ[The] pattern of Jesus Creed grace reminds us that behind the Jesus Creed is not a law-giving, stern God but a grace-giving God who not only gave himself to his Son in never-ending love, but also gave that same Son to us that we might be drawn into the never-ending love of God.” (p 203)

How will you draw near to the never-ending love of God today?
