Shortly after I became a Christian, I had a view of God that was more in line with partisanship than reality. I actually did see God much different than I do today. At one time, He was there to let me know I failed. While I also knew He would pick me up, it was more of the former than the latter. Now, I know in a very vivid, personal, and disappointing way my failings. Perhaps, it might be said that God does not need to tell them to me, but now when I view Him, I view Him more along the line of Matthew 11:28-30 than I do Hebrews 10:31. I do not minimize the latter, but I do take comfort in the former (John 6:68-69)!
