My heart hurts just reading these words.
Not spoken by Jesus because He isn't of Love, but because He knew their hearts. He knows what is within us. He tells us what is in your heart come forth in your words and actions.
My heart hurts when I am as the Pharisees.
My heart is overwhelmed by His forgiveness, His grace, His mercy which have cleansed me of those moments. Only because of Him am I able to confess, repent, and continue striving to be more like Him.
Him - whom I am deeply, madly, head-over-heels in love with.
How thankful I am knowing, without doubt, I will never, ever, ever hear these words spoken in regard to me from my ABBA.
In Christ - we are His. He is ours. Forever.
