"I'm so disappointed in you"


Got this book a few days ago and I'm almost halfway through. I'm not a bookworm but if a book can get me reading on and on, it must be good.

It's quite a risky act to simply purchase a book without knowing how good it is but so far it's a good read especially if your christian walk seems to be driven by guilt, afraid you're not good enough for God and afraid of how He may be disappointed by you.

The title of this post is among the 10 things Jesus never said.

There is no way we can disappoint God because He knows every single thing about us, every decision we would make and every deed we would commit. We'll never catch Him by surprise by the things we do.

Here are some lines taken from the book that I had the urge to share:

God knows more about you than you do. He's a "you" expert! How are you going to surprise Him or somehow do something He didn't expect?

Jesus died for our sins. Past, present, future - He died for it all.

God is way to big and all-knowing for us to ever surprise Him or let Him down.

God knows everything about us but chose to love us anyway.

Our standing as believers before God has forever been confirmed by the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Know that when you fall - and you will - your loving heavenly Father will be the first to pick you up. You will never hear Him say, "I'm so disappointed in you".

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8 -
