WHAT LOVE IS THIS?

whatawondrousloveisthis

A child is born – it happens every day.

But when our Lord,

Savior,

Messiah,

Baby, Jesus,

King,

Emerged from Mary’s womb,

lt was more than extraordinary,

God chose to come to us, to live among us, to be human flesh with the purity, wisdom, and power of the Creator of the universe.  His incomprehensible love is beyond our understanding.  Why would God who cursed mankind for their disobedience, have the heart and mind to take that curse away with His own life?  To separate completely from His Father – to carry the load of the sin of the world on His own shoulders.

We deserved that punishment.  It was our sin that caused our separation from God.  We should’ve gone to the cross.  We should’ve been sentenced to hell for eternity.

Our God doesn’t work that way.  His love is enduring, compassionate, everlasting, selfless.  Because of His wisdom, because of His mercy and, because He is God, He put us first.  What greater love is this.  He laid down His life for humanity.  Oh that we could love others as He first loved us.

He didn’t have to do this, but He deigned to, because it was the only way out for us.

Praise this tiny infant,

Watch Him grow in His human life,

To speak with God-filled knowledge in the temple,

To follow the path laid for Him by John, the Baptist,

To gather huge crowds with a new message,

One of peace, forgiveness, salvation, redemption,

To be falsely accused,

To walk to His execution, carrying the instrument that took His life,

To suffer an unbearable death,

To defeat Satan,

When he displayed His power,

By returning to life,

Showing us that death cannot over power us.

He lives and so will we.

There is no greater love.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.
