[God’s Favor toward Us, Citation: Max Lucado, A Gentle Thunder (Word, 1995)]

There are many reasons God saves you: to bring glory to himself, to appease his justice, to demonstrate his sovereignty.

But one of the sweetest reasons God saved you is because he is fond of you.

He likes having you around.

He thinks you are the best thing to come down the pike in quite a while….

If God had a refrigerator, your picture would be on it.

If he had a wallet, your photo would be in it.

He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.

Whenever you want to talk, he’ll listen.

He can live anywhere in the universe, and he chose your heart.

And the Christmas gift he sent you in Bethlehem?

Face it, friend. He’s crazy about you!
