I'm at World Race training camp in northern Georgia. My parents drove down to join us from a conference they had attended in North Carolina.

David Jeremiah was their speaker. One of his messages was "God loves you, he always has, and he always will."

I guess those of us who follow Jesus just take that for granted. We've heard it before, so why get worked up about it?

On their ride down here, my parents stopped at a restaurant. They were the only ones that the waitress had to serve. She looked to be about 50 years old and a little weather-worn.

She came to the table ready to take their order. My dad is not normally one for small talk with strangers, but he looked at her and said, "You know, God loves you. He always has, and he always will."

Immediately the woman began to cry. When she regained her composure, she said, "Sixteen years ago, my son was killed. I haven't talked to God since," she said.

It's amazing the power of those simple words. Don't we all long to hear them?
