“…that everyone who believes in Him would not perish…” The heart of God was broken when He saw and knew the plight of the human heart. They were sinking in the quick-sand of their own selfish choices. They had gotten themselves in the traffic-jam that now stopped them from moving in any positive direction. Jesus never displayed a “well, you have no one to blame but yourself” mentality. He cared. His caring heart for people motivated Him in all that He did. He didn’t come to be served, but to serve…to care for those who had given up caring at all.
As you continue your preparation for this life-changing adventure, begin to ask God to show you the faces or the stories of those who feel as though no one cares.
