What does a reasonable response to God look like? Living a good, moral life? Trying our best? Serving others? Though all of these responses may seem reasonable, proportion matters. God has given us everything, and through Jesus He has purchased even our eternal life. The only reasonable response, then, is to give Him everything. However, we often live unconvinced that God has actually forgiven us of much. We either think we're already pretty good and have earned His favor, or we think our sin is too bad (or too current) for Him to totally forgive. And because of that, our response to Him is not full, but it is half-hearted and weak. When we come to realize the truth that God pursues us even in our sin, it changes how we respond to Him.

ABOUT THIS SERIES: The Gospel of John was written "that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing in Him you may have life in His Name" (John 20.30). The Apostle John, as an eyewitness and close friend of Jesus', desires for us to behold His beauty, love, and glory, and believe in His power and willingness to being forgiveness and life. As we journey through the Gospel of John, we will behold the life, teachings, works, and ministry of Jesus, and will hear straight from Him who He said He is, so that we would more deeply put our hope and trust in the Man who is God.
