When we get to heaven, we will discover God is so much better than we thought.

Much kinder, grander, more magnanimous, generous, beautiful, vast. We will see that he was always looking at us with those kind, crinkly eyes, glad to have us here.

So let’s start interacting with him that way now.

Jesus enables this exchange: the adoption instead of feeling like a scrappy, orphaned child, the dad and child relationship, the welcome-anytime friendship we couldn’t earn. Ah, but we don’t have to.

“Today, settle your busy heart down and rest in the benefits of redemption. Enjoy the fruits of His goodness, and stop trying to “pay Him back”. You’ll never get close you goofy little kid.” -Derek Loux
