The YOUCAT # of the month for Conquest and Challenge speaks about how in sending his only Son, God shows his merciful love for us. This number explains how Jesus is a true friend, walking along side us. #9: What does God show us about himself when he sends his Son to us? God shows us in Jesus Christ the full depth of his merciful love. He becomes a man like us. This shows us how far God’s love goes: He bears our whole burden. He walks every path with us. He is there in our abandonment, our sufferings, our fear of death. He is there when we can go no farther, so as to open up for us the door leading into life.
This month, let’s try to follow Jesus’ examples and words and do something each day to be better friends with the people in our lives and with God.
