Thomas: God likes you
Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.”
—John 14:23 (NIV)
God reveals Himself as a God who isn’t mad at us. He likes us. Do you know that in experience, that God likes you? He likes you and wants to be with you and hang around with you—wants to go to coffee with you, wants to be involved in your housework, or your job, or whatever it is. And if you knew this, if you do know Him, you know that you would like that.
... Eugene M. Thomas, in a talk delivered May 15, 1983, on the subject “Not Being Worldly” (see the book)
