God loves YOU, and He loves you as you are,
By A Customer
This review is from: Love Beyond Reason: Moving God's Love from Your Head to Your Heart (Hardcover)
"Her name was Pandy," the story begins. Pandy was a doll which was once adorable, but now only a rag doll. There was no reason anymore to like Pandy. But the girl did love Pandy, and loved her so much that Pandy became lovable to anybody who loved the girl!
With pictures like this John Ortberg shows us God's love to "rag dolls" like us. A love beyond reason and comprehension, a love that simply is.
The book also retells several stories from the gospels. "Jesus touched the leper." Yes, go on? Read it again: "Jesus TOUCHED the leper!" A man carrying af deadly, horrible, contagious disease that had made him an outcast, a man you would not even like to see. But Jesus loved him so much that he saw him and touched him. He also healed him, but suddenly it doesn't look like the greatest miracle in the story.
Every chapter has something new to tell, every time showing new aspects of God's immense love for us. If you doubt God really loves you, let this book be an eye-opener. If you already know God loves you, read the book to learn more about how much this means. Highly recommended for anybody.
