big < 3 : )

John 3:16 in the Amplified:

16For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten ([a]unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.

God has a heart bigger than all of our hearts put together. A forgiveness and trust in His creation to an extent that He's able to use people who've not got it altogether, to magnify His largeness of heart. A heart that finds ways and means to give, give and give. To uplift spirits, to heal hearts, to empower dreams.

What with the recent boy scandals revolving around the Church, insensitive comments by pastors, Mike G's cancer hoax couple years ago--God is not taken by surprise : ) Using broken man to bring about revival in itself is 'scandalous' to the world. But His heart is for the world.

It is the scandal of God's amazing grace.
