    I think the hardest concept too get through peoples heads is that God is not angry with them…and why he isn’t.

    I’m teaching through Romans 5…which is really about how through the Incarnation we have peace with God.

    It should cause rejoicing…

    Thank you, Duane! I love teaching the Christmas story to my preschoolers at church because they “get” it. They are fully involved in the story of the Baby who came to love and help people.

    I think it is even more difficult now. Anger and outrage have become a currency of exchange among us, so it makes it easier to make the same attribution to God. We continue to try and make God in our image and likeness…

    Linn,

    Children “get it” better than adults…

    Duane,

    True.
    I also think that as Christians we’ve heard the Good News so much that it becomes old news…the church calendar was designed so that we can hear it afresh every year…

    Michael,

    Agreed… Each season of the Church Year, presents us with the Gospel in a new way.

    God so loved the world……
    What I can’t get my mind around is how dismissive of this so many are..
    Our Lord, praying in the garden, knowing what He was facing, prayed, “Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me…..”
    On the cross,bearing our sins, the man cried, ” My God, My God! Why have You forsaken me?”
    That cry? If it doesn’t take your breath away, what would?
    Love was when God became a man….. as the song goes
