The crux of Easter lies in this one verse,
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John:3:16(NKJV)
Even as I was meditating on JESUS, the cross and what I should write today, the HOLY SPIRIT reminded of the verse John:3:16 and somehow I couldn’t let go of the thought, that GOD ALMIGHTY so so so loved the world and its people filled with flaws, full of sin and so unfaithful and would willingly give HIS only SON to die so that we can have eternal life, that blows my mind away.
In fact, the Bible tells us that GOD had this plan even before HE created the world, even before the foundations of the world was laid. Oh, there is no limit to HIS unfailing Love.
For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time–to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.2 Tim:1:9
So even as we step into this Lent, lets just soak in the very thought that GOD the Creator of Heaven and Earth, The Father of all Creation, The King of all kings whose throne is the Heaven and the Earth HIS footstool, his very breath melts the earth, at HIS voice Nations tremble, Lord of lords, Omnipotent, Omniscient and unapproachable yet revealed HIMSELF to us through HIS beloved Son JESUS to show us HIS unconditional love.
Years ago I heard our Professor say this and its so profound,
“JESUS brought an unreachable GOD into an embracing distance”
Wherever you are today just feel HIS embrace and know that you are truly loved.
Have a great day!!!GOD bless!
