Jesus . . .

Isn't He awesome? *sigh* What King would care about us? What King would allow us to talk to Him through a special thing called prayer? What King would love us so much as to come down into this worldly world, and DIE for us, so that we could spend eternity with Him? Most kings/Presidents don't care about your life personally. Most kings/Presidents might like to talk to you, but they probably don't have the time. No person has come down to live among horrible sinners and to die for them.

I think giving up America and all the good stuff there, then coming to live in a foreign county to work with Egyptian Christians is giving up a whole lot. Jesus was in Heaven, a perfect place with no sin. Then He was born in a smelly stable. No, that manger wasn't filled with sweet-smelling hay and the animals weren't stainless clean. Trust me, I've lived on a farm. Anyhow, I'm skipping a few holidays already, it's not Christmas yet. 

Is going from this . . . 

 . . . to this, that big of a deal? No, not compared to what Christ did for us. 

I'm thankful that He died for us, so we can live with Him.

  1. Beautiful. :))

    I always love thinking about it. Jesus wasn't just a king, he was a God that could not die. I wonder if God had trouble with the concept of death? Like, we have trouble imagining eternity, I wonder if God has problems envisioning an End? I dunno. In any case, He went from that and did die for us. Someone with limitless wealth, the power to never die...and he did. That's true love, right there.

    I love it. :)))
