How great is God’s love for us? How many of us remember being children and being in a long car ride? It doesn’t matter if we had many siblings or we were an only child, the parents were always the same. The words, ‘Don’t make me come back there!’ were used at some point on almost any given road trip as a parents and child group went together.
Here’s the awesome thing, how awesome and great is God’s love for us that He actually DID come down here!!! Jesus was with God and said, ‘Yup! I’ll leave you dad, for a time. I will go down there for three decades plus and show ‘me how it’s supposed to be done. I’ll do that because they need to know you and I am you, so, I’ll show them you!’ Jesus did that for you and for me!
He became a helpless baby (who incidentally could have done anything He wanted even as an infant) and grew up in human form and died and rose again for each and every one of us. And all He asks is we accept that truth and the gift of His salvation. That’s it! Will you tonight, three short days before Christmas still not accept the greatest gift ever given to man in Jesus Christ? Oh, how I wish you would accept it.
Let us Journey this faith together, as the disciples did.
