Heads up: The following quote is pretty offensive, but not all offensive things are untrue. I agree with Dawson, but I totally get it if you don’t.
“Humanity does not deserve the love of God any more than you or I do. We should never be Christian humanists, taking Jesus to poor, sinful people, reducing Jesus to come kind of product that will better their lot. People deserve to be damned, but Jesus, the suffering Lamb of God, deserves the reward of His suffering.”
John Dawson Taking Our Cities for God (208-209)
I’d never thought of salvation this way… that Jesus deserves for us to be saved. Enlightening, eh?
