Some friends and I have been discussing how radical the idea of God liking us is.
We’ve been told all our Christian lives that God LOVES us, but somehow many of us have never been told that he LIKES us, too.
God doesn’t “just” love you, God LIKES you!
He delights in you.
God LIKES me. He delights in me.
I still have a voice within me that wants to add things to that. A voice that wants to clarify that statement so that you don’t think that I’m one of those crazy antinomians. But I’m going to stop right there. No clarification. No conditions. God loves us AND likes us.
