<~1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
Those who do not have a relationship with God cannot understand the concept of God loving His creation so much that He would be willing to die for us. Therefore, when we tell others about Christ and His life, death, burial and resurrection, they think we are crazy. They think we are religious nuts with no common sense.
But to the believer, Christ’s sacrifice for us is so significant that we are brought to tears! To think that Someone would die for me despite my sinful life – despite how much I hurt Him! It shows us just how much God truly loves us!
~Romans 5:6) For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
~Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
Christ died for us while we were sinners – there is nothing we can do to make ourselves “good enough” for His wonderful gift of salvation! It is free – it is priceless – it is eternal!
My son took this picture above when visiting Monticello, Virginia. As I saw the sun’s rays piercing through the rain clouds, it reminded me of God’s precious love reaching down to man through His Son, Jesus Christ. There is no place that God’s hand cannot reach – His loves reaches down to the deepest depths!
~Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.
