God’s Desire

In the television drama Downton Abbey, two servants named Bates and Anna fall in love. Their love is a special kind of love, one that doesn’t give up, no matter what obstacles are put before them. Their love is a powerful illustration of God’s strong desire to be with his people and not let sin keep him away. He is faithful in keeping his promises. He sent his Son to die for our sins so that we can be with him forever, and he sent his Spirit to live in us, confirm his words to us, and help us walk in his truth.
