God is in the saving/healing and restoring business (John 10:10; 1 Timothy 2:4; 2 Peter 3:9).

God does not condemn sinners any more than we condemn those born with Down’s syndrome (Romans 8:1).

God has forgiven us ALL our sins, past, present and future (Colossians 2:13-14; Ephesians 4:32).

God trusts us to share the good news of his grace with others (Matthew 28:19-20).

The miracle of grasping the wonder of God gives selfish sinners a new attitude of unreserved loyalty to love (John 3).

Jesus Christ revealed the truth about God which was seen only vaguely by the prophets (Hebrews 1:3).

God is busy saving us, especially through the ministry of the Spirit and the angels (John 15:26; Hebrews 1:14).

We can only be lost by determined rebellion against God (1 John 3:4).

God dreams for us and we are destined to serve the universe with him, to sit on his throne with him (Matthew 20:28, Romans 8:14-17).

The Sabbath is a sign of God’s commitment for community with his creation (Genesis 2:1-3).

The Cross revealed the heart of God. It did not change the heart of God (John 12:27-32).
