No Greater Love

As Good Friday and Easter approach, I often reflect upon the meaning of the holidays.  Every time I ponder the true meaning of the cross, I am in total awe, and often speechless.

How could someone love me so much that He would leave a Holy place, enter a sinful world, and willingly take my place on the cross?

No greater love exists!

The Wonder of God's Love

Hello Beautiful!! I have something very special to share with you today.

You are on God's mind, and He wants to remind you of His love for you.

But first, please ask yourself, how do I view God?  How does God view me?  Take a few minutes to ponder that and write it down if you must.

Some look at Him as being this great, big being, sitting in a chair...looking down at us, waiting for us to make a mistake so that He can chastise and punish us.

Some view him as being this celestial Santa Claus, believing that everything we ask for He will or should give it to us.  

Although He is a God of judgement and certainly chastens those He loves (Hebrews 12:6), and the bible tells us that we have not because we ask not (although the concepts concerning this scripture have been misinterpreted by many to fit personal desires), these are just portions of His character.

God's motive for creating you, protecting you, caring for you, and sending His son Jesus for you is simply because of this...

HE LOVES YOU.

But that did not stop us from being faithful to the ministry.
