this is Love.

    Newer Older

    A very long time ago, some people messed up and something called sin entered the world. God, the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, is a just God, and sin had to be punished. The consequence of sin is Death, not earthly death but eternal death, living in separation from God forever. But God loved His creation so much that He decided to make another way. He sent His own Son, Jesus, to come to earth and live for 33 years without sinning once. Not once! Not once did He lie, lust, or hate. Then Jesus was brutally murdered; He was whipped, beaten, mocked, spat upon, and nailed to a nasty cross next to thieves. He could have escaped at any time, He could have with one word killed all the people who were torturing Him. But He loved them. He loved us. Jesus came to take on the sins of the world; the sinless One died for the sinners! While we were still helpless, Christ died for us.
    But it didn't end there. Three days later, Jesus conquered death and rose! His love is stronger than death; and my Jesus is alive! He went back to Heaven, but He is coming back for His bride (the Church; not one church in particular but all those who have given their lives to Him around the world.)
    This may sound like fairy tales to some, but to me it sounds like a beautiful love story between a perfect God and a very imperfect me. But when God looks at me, He does not see me in all the wrong things I've done; He sees His own son's blood covering my ugliness and making me beautiful. And so now I can have a love relationship with God. I am absolutely in love with Him and He loves me endlessly.
    Happy Good Friday/Resurrection Day.
