I want to talk to you today about The God Who Stoops. We think if we can live good enough then God will bless us, if we can clean ourselves up, get rid of this bad habit, not fail anymore, then God will show us his favor. The problem is: we can't live that way. We all make mistakes, we have times we give into temptation, let our emotions take over. The condemning voices come saying "You blew. It it's your fault. God's never going to help you". But that's not the way our God is. When you can't come up to his level, he says "Don't worry I'll, come down to yours". He's not so high that he won't come low. And it's good to see him as powerful, holy, the Creator of the universe, but if you only see him that way you'll be intimidated, overwhelmed, "I'll never measure up". You have to see him as the God who stoops. He comes down to the messy places. He's a God that will get his hands dirty.
