Gloria Gaither said... “Right from the beginning God’s love has reached out for us, and from the beginning man has refused to understand. But love went on reaching, offering itself. And still today, after two thousand years, patiently, lovingly, Christ is reaching out to us today. He is reaching, longing to share with us...the very being of God. His love still is longing ... His love still is reaching ... right past the shackles of my mind. And the Word of the Father became Mary’s little Son. And His love reached all the way to where I was.”
What an awesome gift our Lord gave us...the Father out of love gave us His Son...to live as we do so He could understand our crippled nature. Then seeing our crippled and unholy nature he willingly went to the Cross to become our sin...and yet to do that He had to drink from that bitter cup...a cup full of all the unrighteous acts committed before He came and would be committed after He ascended. God's love is so unmerited and yet it is given so freely. I praise Him today because "His love did reach all the way to where I was.” Ain't our God so AWESOME...stop now and praise HIM!
