Bristow Hood tells us about God's amazing and expansive love that we often choose not to experience. He forgives us, heals us, and redeems us. All of which releases us from the pit of sin and condemnation; he brings us into his freedom. We become people of love and compassion who can then spread God's freedom to others.
Jeff Faust talks about God revealing his perfect love to us. Jesus became one of us to show us that love. We were helpless, even God's enemies, and still he gave everything for us. Through the ongoing revelation of his perfect love, we are made his friends.
