God is good--to me

“The idea that “Christ through me” could be frightening is rooted in a faulty sense of God’s character. What’s not to like about a God who is always for us and doesn’t hold anything against us? If we’re hesitant to relinquish our daily lives to God, it’s because we don’t yet trust his goodness.

“Sure, we may know that God is good. But “God is always good to me” is an altogether different thought...”—The Naked Gospel, page 195

This is a really interesting idea; I need to think about it.

I just want to say that I've just ordered this book. The quotes you have posted here are the only reason I was even aware of it. Thanks.
