God is not a God we’re unable to find. That is what is most amazing. God became man and walked along human highways in order to encounter people. In Christ we find God’s justification. Christ is the God who pardons, the God who justifies. Christ is the God who has come not to condemn but to forgive (John 3:17). Christ is the shepherd who goes out in search of the lost sheep so that they come and join in the joy of his flock of the justified, from which no one is excluded. With what longing he said, “I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold, and they must be brought in” (John 10:16).
