God Says "I Love You" - Isaiah 43
Luther Seminary Professor Terry Fretheim reads Isaiah 43, the only verse in the Bible where God uses the phrase, "I love you."
Watch Fretheim explain why this passage is so powerful: "God values who you are. God honors your place in this relationship. And God places confidence in you to speak, and act, and pray in ways that God can use. For you are God's own vineyard, God's own garden of imagination, God's very own beloved."
