love God? sometimes i hate Him

“Love God? Sometimes I hate Him.” ~Martin Luther

“Love God. Love people.” is a beautiful summary OF THE LAW.

When we are told that the Gospel is “Love God. Love your neighbor,” we wilt.

I want to love God and my neighbor perfectly.
But I don’t.

It is not Good News to tell me that I must do something that is impossible in order to avoid the wrath I deserve..

Do not tell people that in order to be saved they need only to love God and their neighbor.
They cannot do it and they will not be saved by trying their best and failing at it.

So what hope remains then for the Christian who failed?
