LET’S WONDER TOGETHER

Yesterday we celebrated a day of love for one another……..but there is no love like our GOD’S!

So behold HIM…….seek HIM and you will find HIM near.  HE is right there, just waiting for you, yes you!  And in the deep corners of your mind, you have to wonder…….

OH, HOW HE LOVES US!

We have to wonder why the GOD of our universe chose to come down and be born in a meager manger.

OH, HOW HE LOVES US!

And you have to wonder how that Christmas story unfolded so perfectly with the Babe JESUS remaining safe from the horrible King Herod.  And what about those wise men who followed that perfect star in the East and found JESUS just as the angel said.

And isn’t it a wonder that Joseph listened to the angel in a dream and took Mary and the child to safety in Egypt to escape Herod’s murderous rampage that killed all the baby boys.

Isn’t it a perfect ending to this story that the Holy family found safety in Israel because all who tried to kill the child were finally dead?

OH, HOW HE LOVES US!

Yes it’s a wonder, what GOD will do for love……..it is evident in the Christmas story and every story since then.  HIS love for us is evident on the Cross when CHRIST said to the criminals being crucified beside HIM: “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.”  CHRIST loved those criminals beside HIM and wanted them with HIM on that day.

OH, HOW HE LOVES US!

In spite of our lack of awe, GOD still loves us, yes in spite of ourselves!  God was and is with us, now and always.  HE lived and breathed earth’s air and died for our sins on a tree.  HIS love came down just for us……to get us, to touch us.  Isn’t it a wonder?

Yesterday we celebrated a day of love for those who mean so much to us in our lives.  But today and every day forward, let us abide in HIS love.  We did not choose HIM, but HE chose us.  Yes, GOD’S great love for us truly is a wonder!

JOHN 15: 9 “AS THE FATHER LOVED ME, I ALSO HAVE LOVED YOU; ABIDE IN MY LOVE.”
