Jesus identifies with and cares for the lonely, reconciling sinners to himself through his death and resurrection.
God really does care for you!
Some time ago someone placed this ad in a Kansas newspaper:
I will listen to you talk for 30 minutes without comment for $5.00.
Sounds like a hoax, doesn't it? But the person was serious. Did anybody call? You bet. It wasn't long before this individual was receiving ten to twenty calls a day. The pang of loneliness was so sharp that some were willing to try anything for a half hour of companionship.
God knows, my friend, and He does care. Please believe that! He not only knows and cares-He understands, He is touched, He is moved. And He longs to sustain and deliver us.
