Fervent, loving intercession
After welcoming Evan into the world, I realized that I’d pictured God all wrong. Yes, I fully believe that we are all sinners and that the penalty for our sin is death. But that’s why God provided Jesus, the Lamb of God, as the only perfect and holy sacrifice for our sin. God created each of us as special and unique. All life comes from Him, and we, as His children, are sacred and treasured in His sight. Yes, we’re all sinners, but He loves us so much that He provided a “bridge” for us so we could cross the chasm of sin and be reconciled to Him. That bridge is Jesus.
