God is totally and passionately willing to make us uncomfortable in order to build our faith.  Such was the case for the exiles returning to Judah and Jerusalem.  But alas, even the attention getter of judgment and exile has no remedy for a dead heart.  The Messiah and His Kingdom were absent; and the returning exiles, minus idolatry, can still not keep covenant with God.

Jesus came, not just for the world, but for God!  And He spoke of this reason many times, and He reveals much about the character and nature of God in what He said, as well as what He did and does!  Knowing these things about God, revealed by Jesus, challenges us to the core and calls us to draw near!
