Running From God: Sin, Shame, and a Father Who Pursues

Last weekend I had the privilege of speaking at First Christian Church. It was the third installment in a series called “Pursued,” all about realizing that God doesn’t give up on us, and He doesn’t chase us to punish us, but He pursues us because He loves us. A few of my favorite quotes/thoughts:

Sin is what separates us from God. Shame keeps us running away from Him.”

You are never too broken, never too damaged, never too used, never too ugly, never too dirty to be loved by God.” (Tweet this)

“The difference between the world and Jesus is this: The world says, “You’re filthy, your clothes are dirty…go clean yourself up and come back.” Jesus says, “You’re filthy, your clothes are dirty…here, have mine. I’ll take your dirty ones.”
