The interesting problem with Chris is that he not only realizes he's to blame, but begins to feel that if there is a God, His love could not possibly extend to him. The wrongs he has committed do not deserve the mercy of an Almighty God. On one level he's right. Yet, we'd have to take that a step further. You see, none of us are worthy of God's mercy, grace, and the sacrificial death of His Son which bought our freedom. That's where Chris makes his biggest mistake. He feels he's too far away from God for God to reach him. That's just not the case. God can and will reach everyone who is willing to reach out to Him for help.
If you're out there thinking that this Christianity stuff sounds good, but you've done things that put you beyond God's reach, then read this book again. Read the Bible again. There is only one thing that can make you unreachable, and that is the unwillingness to let God reach you. It's up to you. Stop thinking that you are unreachable and start thinking about how powerful God's reach is. Jesus makes us worthy. We live in Him or there is no life worth living.
