6. Thinking of God’s Righteousness

Shortly before His death on the cross, Jesus, looking at the people around Him directed these heart-rending words to those who opposed Him:


“How often have I longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing! (Matthew 23:37).


The obstacle for God is not our sin, for His love has conquered these already, but our unwillingness to receive His gift of love, namely forgiveness through Jesus.


But now I must apologise for the length of this letter! Just realise the relevance of the proverb which says, “out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks”. Well, that’s the way it is with me when thinking, speaking, or writing about God. (By the way – that proverb also originated from the Bible in Matthew 12:34).


You will agree that this saying is not inappropriate for the topic we touched on.


Sincere greetings!
