1Cary W = "Thank you Jesus for emptying Yourself for all of us, to give us so much of a demonstration that we shall never have reason to doubt your ineffable endearing love. Thank you. I love you."
2Sarah R = "What beautiful, challenging words from Manning! We can easily fall into complacency and be lukewarm in our faith. The faith God calls us to, however, is not complacent or lukewarm. It is a crazy, adventurous life of following after Christ, the one who loved us so much He died for us. "
3Cary W = "I am amazed some days in God's patience and love, for in light of what He did for us through His Son Jesus, we still have so much tolerance for war, division, hate and violence. I know all that we do that is not of love, grieves His heart and our own. May love lead all hearts to soften, to repent and be restored to His great love, vision and mission."
4Sarah R = "If we really understood how much God loves us, it would completely change our lives, and our view of ourselves, others, and the world around us, as well as the world to come."
5Sarah R = "Manning's message of "God loves you as you are, not as you should be" is about changing our mindset about how God views us. The outpouring of this changed mind should be a change in how we live. As author Max Lucado says, "God loves you the way you are, but He loves you too much to leave you that way." When we accept God's love, we are more willing and able to let Him work in us to change us to be more like Him."
6Cary W = "May we trust, really believe that God loves each of us, just as we are, and not as we should be. While we were yet sinners, far from God, Jesus died for us. The love and acceptance of God does not rest ever, on what we do for Him, but always on what He does for us, for God is love."
