TRUTH FOR TODAY

Glenn E. Hawkins, Evangelist

WHERE GODíS LOVE IS BEST LEARNED [4]

When Jesus explained to Peter that Satan would "sift" him as wheat, He said, "But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren" (Luke 22:32). When we live for no higher goal than to be pain-free, supposing that God "loves" us too much to let anything "harmful" happen to us, what happens is something very harmful indeed: we lose our best chance to learn what God's love really means. (Thanks to Evangelist Gary Henry for these thoughts.)
