Do we really believe God of the Bible truly is madly in love with us, even in our weakness and brokenness? Do we really believe that He wants to be with us and commune with us? John 3:16 and Romans 8:38-39 claim that God loves us and no one or nothing can separate His love for us. We might believe this truth with our head knowledge, but not with our heart. Even though the Bible is clear who this God is, we listen to lies and come up with a conclusion that God is always sad, mad, or distant and despises us. If we really believe these lies about God, no wonder we don't want to be more intimate with God, spend more time with God, or obey what He says with gladness. As we are going over the theme of Transformation, we need to check our hearts and ask ourselves, "How do I really view God?" and "Is my view of God Biblical?"
