Transcript of Video:
I love the gospel of John because of the loving, playful image it gives us of Jesus. He’s serious and there are very serious things that occur in the gospel. But there’s this playfulness and this hunger to relate that is just wonderful. We all have those desires to have deep relationships with people and Jesus shows that sure it’s possible that it could happen. And in touching those people, He makes it happen in them. They have those relationships with other people as well as with Jesus. I mean, He opens something and helps them to live out rather than being focused on themselves.
If they don’t get it, He still loves them. You know, through all of that, He still loves them. That undying love that He has helps us to have that same kind of persistent undying love for other people. And if we don’t hear that message, our lives are so … so narrow. So … we lack the kind of richness that that love for other people can give our own life.
