What Kind of God?

What Kind of God?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What kind of man

would dive into a raging sea

to save a drowning child

that he might live and breathe?

~

What kind of woman

would give her only piece of bread

to feed hungry children

that she might starve herself instead?

~

What kind of God

would die a death vulgar and cruel

to save a wanton sinner

from the plight of feckless fools?

~

What kind of person

would not heed such Love Divine

and receive the gift of grace

ย Christ has given as yours and mine?

Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man,

though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.

Romans 5:7

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

Christmas is just around the corner,

and I thought I would focus this post on why Jesus came to earth in the first place.

It certainly was not to boost retail sales in the dead of winter.

Emmanuel means: ‘God with us.’

Christ came to rescue and save us.

God did not send his Son to shake his finger at us.

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,

but to save the world through him.

John 3:17

This is why the Gospel is called the ‘Good News.’

The bad news is that every person has missed the mark of righteousness.

Everyone needs a Savior;

it ain’t Superman or Spiderman

ย Prime Minister Stephen Harper and President Obama won’t be able to save us either…

ย as I am sure you know by now!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Whoever believes in him is not condemned,

but whoever does not believe stands condemned already

because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only son.

John 3:18

  6. This is so wonderful, Wendy–I am drowning in the BLUE photos I love so much! And, that is always my question: why do folks “pass up” the Ultimate Gift of Christ?? Enjoy your time away from blogging–I would love a break, but doubt I can manage it… God bless you BIG–much love, sis Caddo

I enjoy a word in season, so I'd love it if you added an apple to the bowl.
