What if God didn't love us? What if He didn't send His Son to bear sin's penalty in our place? What if He chose to keep us without any understanding of Himself such as He has given us in the Holy Bible? What if He took no interest in our lives? What if He didn't care about our future? What if He had no plans to bless us? What if He didn't want to be bothered to listen to us? What if God would answer none of our prayers? What if He ignored our hurts and offered no comfort in trials? What if He gave us no beauty and wonder to enjoy? What if He punished us every time we did wrong? What if He offered us no protection in life? What if He didn't bother to give us sunlight or rain? What if He didn't grant harvests? What if he allowed no inventions of labor saving devices? What if God criticized everything we do? What if He just wrote us off and sent us to hell? What if, indeed!? Selah! Our God manifests amazing grace to all mankind, inviting them to receive His Son as Savior and Lord, thereby giving all who receive the Lord Jesus a vital relationship with Himself. He is a personal God Who has, at infinite cost, reached down to us in the gutter of sin and offered His hand to lift us up to walk in newness of Life. What a gracious and merciful God!! Ron
For all who throw themselves on His grace and mercy: "He that spared not His own son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things" (Romans 8:32)?
A blessed Thanksgiving to all!
