The Lord has a love for you that we can hardly comprehend. He will run after you like a shepherd does for a lost sheep, going into the wilderness just to find you. He will get down in the mud and the mess and isn’t intimidated by whatever situation you are in. But He loves you too much to leave you where He found you. The Good Shepherd not only passionately pursues us, but rescues us, cleans us up, and allows us to follow Him. It is a love that is available for all, no matter your gender, sexuality, your race, your politics, or even your past mistakes.
“God loves you just the way you are, but He loves you too much to leave you there.” – Max Lucado
