Imagine you are God, you created people and You want them to know You. How do you communicate that?
CREATION. ( accidental / random )
LAW. ( impossible )
DISCIPLINE ( harsh )
GRACE. ( doubt free )
SON / REDEMPTION. ( crucify, ignore, erase )

Luther as boy begging for sausages
15:hr 26 left
Luther told story of childhood – begging for sausages as was common for children to do. One day a kindly man ran after the boys with sausages in his hands. Luther and friends ran FROM him thinking they were in some kind of trouble.
That attitude followed Luther throughout his life, doubting goodness of God and others at times.
? – what is God running after us and hold out to us… FOR US, and we run away?
NO NEED TO RUN!
