The Bible tells us stories about God’s passionate love for people. When God becomes flesh and takes center stage in Jesus, we see a man relentless in the pursuit of others, including those who have been discounted, rejected, and despised. Through Jesus, God’s actions towards His creation reveal a deep, unwavering love.
A simple touch and the leper is healed. While others push lepers away, Jesus reaches out. A blind beggar cries out loudly as Jesus nears. The crowd tries to silence him, but Jesus stops to give him full attention and heals him too. Nicodemus, a religious leader with sincere questions, approaches Jesus at night. Jesus speaks to his heart, letting him know there is something more he needs—he needs to be born again
