Qualified By Failure

"The one-way love of God meets us in our failure. Our failures make His one-way love that much more glorious. What qualifies us for service is God's devotion to us-  not our devotion to Him. This is as plainly as I can say it: the value of our lives rests on God's intimate, incomprehensible,unconditional love for us-  not our love for Him. Such relief! We can finally exhale!"
