Do you feel like God is distant and remote? That He’s either unconcerned or doesn’t understand your suffering? Many believe that the toughest blow in life is to lose a spouse or a child, and it’s hard to argue with that.
Have you ever had a child die? God has—His only boy. He understands the pain of a parent when a child dies. Have you ever had a child murdered when they were completely innocent and good? God has. He understands that type of hatred and rejection.
Could there be a greater evil than to murder an innocent man? No, but this will blow your mind: you are guilty of that evil, and so am I. With our sin, we murdered the Son of God. And, amazingly, God in His grace is willing to forgive, and give us salvation if we’ll simply confess our sin and trust Christ to change us from the inside out.
God understands our suffering, and He’s given the greatest thing He could to help us through it. It’s called grace.

Murder on We Heart Ithttp://weheartit.com/entry/108838769/via/GodsGrace96
God didn’t love Judas and Peter differently, it was Judas and Peter who loved God differently. Sin reveals who we love more (God or ourselves) at any given moment and our repentance (or lack thereof) reveals who we love more in the moments that follow.Life Teen Lent Companion (4/15/14)
