Incomparable Kindness

image

Only when we have felt the terror of the matter, can we recognize the incomparable kindness. God comes into the very midst of evil and death, and judges the evil in us and in the world. And by judging us, God cleanses and sanctifies us, comes to us with grace and love…. God wants to always be with us, wherever we may be—in our sin, suffering, and death. We are no longer alone; God is with us. Bonhoeffer

    In college, I used to read Bonhoeffer in my free time (in addition to whatever theological treatises I was assigned). I’m thinking I should go back and read them all again, as a grown-up. Thanks for the little reminders. 🙂
