Still, it’s what GOD had in mind all along, to crush him with pain.
The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin
so that he’d see life come from it—life, life, and more life.
And GOD’s plan will deeply prosper through him.
Isaiah 53:10 The Message
No matter who you are, no matter where you come from, no matter what you’ve done,
GOD bled his heart out for you because He loves you.
And He wants you to live.
He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.
— Jim Elliot
Life with Pleasure is too silly to be of colossal importance.
Life with God is too important to be of colossal silliness.
When you stop breathing,
When your body fails you,
When Death has swept you away,
the question at hand wouldn’t be
Where will you go? or What next?
In the end, every human being would have to face the reality of life beyond Earth.
In the end, there will be no room for reasons or excuses.
In the end, the condition of Life will be measured by the absence or presence of a Person.
It is by these truths that I ask all of us the Question.
Who do you have with you?
His hand hath made this noble work which stands
His glorious handiwork not made by hands.
Who spake all things from nothing; and with ease
Can speak all things to nothing, if he please.
Whose little finger at his pleasure can
Out mete ten thousand worlds with half a span:
Whose might almighty can by half a looks
Root up the rocks and rock the hills by the roots.
~ Edward Taylor (poet)~
Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens:
Who created all these?
He who brings out the starry host one by one
and calls forth each of them by name.
Because of his great power and mighty strength,
not one of them is missing.
…What is mankind that you are mindful of them,
a son of man that you care for him?
Hebrews 2:6; Psalm 8:4
