“Not fully embracing the idea that God really cares about you personally is the spiritual equivalent of running away from home.
But it doesn’t have to be that way, because God does care about you. The Bible
says, “Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you” (1 Peter 5:7).
And God is adamant that we get this message. That’s why He has given us the Bible, and the book’s plot is actually very simple. In fact, the plot would make a great subtitle: “Loving Father Relentlessly Pursues a Relationship with His Children.”
Your heavenly Father will never desert you, never abuse you, never fail to forgive you, never hold back His grace, and never condition His love on your performance. He’s determined. He is in relentless pursuit of you, and He will not be denied. As I hope you will discover in this booklet, to be a son who is relentlessly pursued like that can turn a man around in his tracks.”
