In the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, one God. Amen. Dear beloved, the relationship between God and man has always been one of challenges. God has always sought after us with passion and love, while man has consistently failed God and rejected Him. Despite God showing man hard lessons in the Old Testament, He did not give up on His children, but rather, as Psalm 84:1-12 implied, He would send His greatest gift to man, His son Jesus Christ, as our salvation.
