One of my favorites bible verse is 👇
But Christ died for us while we were still sinners, and by this God showed how much he loves us.
Rom. 5:8 ERV
The truth about this verse to me still keeps me in awe of the depth of God’s love into us. One thing I remain grateful to God the most is Him never giving up on us. You know sometimes I imagine a washed and trampled upon litter(s) on the floor as being us that God decided to make a newness out of us and brought us to His fineness and beauty. I imagine lives whom people around them have given up hope and consideration for, that God decided to have His compassion on us and still call us sons and daughters. Lives thrown apart and battered that God still called His chosen ones. Individuals who have lost all sense of meaning that God decided to bring forth meaning in and through them.
We were indeed once lost but now found. We were indeed lost in our trails until He found us out and held us by the hand to lead us and with His eyes to behold all that happens to us. I picture lives that physically, all hope is lost on them like a patient whose life support has being unplugged but yet God says I am not giving up on you and me. He didn’t give up on us before now and not now will He cos He has a love everlasting for us. He will continue to kept watch over us. And our concerns will of utmost be His concern always. 💭 💃
Another picture of this verse above is: the picture of a thief or a scrap collector being given a priceless and precious possession to keep, knowing yet still that there is a tendency he or she will sell it off or discard it cos he or she is used to the scrap he often collects or to him or her, money is all that matters.
I picture lives whose bearing was beyond any compass giving him or her a direction or bearing and still being able to find a path in all the confusion that lies in his or her heart. That God decided to do all that it takes to bring us back to the path of life even if it means shedding the blood of His only son is a deep one for me. Note that, His “Only”; “begotten” son. God!, what a sacrifice you made. (John 3:16)🙌🙌
He didn’t care about us being appreciative of it or not, He still paid that price for you and I. It didn’t matter to Him if we might accept His outstretched arms of love or not. Yet still, He took the risk I must say and gave us Hope, newness and life through it! (to name a few out of the blessings that He has bestowed unto us).😘❤
God!, the depth of your love unto us is beyond the scope of our understanding. I am awed at the depth of it which I know it’s beyond this oh lord. Who can love us like you do?. Who can cherish us like you do?. Who can take the pain as to engrave our names on his palms like you did?. Who can be the “All in all” unto us, if not you?. Amazing isn’t He? 🌸☺
Who can hold on to us even if it means him or her standing alone with us all the way and being with us in our stormy times if not only you?. Who can pay the price for our sins and aches even if it costs him his all, if not Him? 👇
— Instead, he gave up everything, even his place with God. He accepted the role of a servant, appearing in human form. During his life as a man,
Php. 2:7 ERV
Who can behold our fears even when it remains unvoiced, if not you?. Who can understand our testimonies better than ourselves if not you?. Who can share in the peak of our joy and successes to it’s core if not you?, because only you understand where we were coming from (our histories) in comparison to where we are now (our story).
It’s amazing at how much you know of us even more than we do. Thank you for being more than our creator – thank you for being God!!. Thank you for being a great friend beyond all doubts. Thank you for teaching us Love to it’s depth. Thank you for all successes and histories. Thank you for Life in you!. Daalu yesu!
That word – God! is a bounty beyond expression on it’s own. God!!!!!!
You are simply amazing!
What a lover redefined you have for us.
Thank you for teaching us LOVE at it’s peak!.
