He Wants Our Honesty

God doesn't want our 'good works'; He desires our honesty.

The changes in my self came only from that place of desperate, blubbering honesty before God, my loving Father. No more pretence, no more hiding, no more false fear, no more excuses, no more feigned eloquence. Just the real, exposed me, before a real, living and loving God.

That's what God wants. There's a verse in the Bible that says He "desires mercy, not sacrifice". God desires to show us mercy, because it is His delight to love on us. His nature is compassion and deep justice, which really is right relationship, true reconciliation with His sons and daughters. With that comes a real basis for reconciliation with our fellow brothers and sisters. What a living Hope!
