God does not send us into the dangerous and exacting life of faith because we are qualified; He chooses in order to qualify us for what he wants us to be or do." Eugene Peterson

Loving God in the Moment
Good Friday morning found me sitting at the Red Coffee Box amazed at how the mood of the day depicted the reality of Christ's death. All retail stores and grocery stores are closed in Germany on this day. It was cold and rainy in the morning. It snowed in the afternoon. You can see the ice and snow on the mountain. Saturday was filled with preparations for Sunday. And Sunday was a blessed time with my God given family and friends.
Most people post about Easter right after or while it is happening. I'm well - not normal. Sometimes it takes me a while to process things. In pondering this past Easter I come away remembering and being thankful for some really great truths.
Jesus Christ: Son of God who lowered himself to walk on earth, to live, loving Man yet rejected by Man. Would I have followed Him in this horror if I were there? Do I follow Him now?
Jesus Christ: Son of God who was buried and lay in the grave for 3 days to conquer sin. Do I live each day aware of the great gift He has given in forgetting my sins and placing them as far as the east is from the west?
Jesus Christ: Son of God who on the third day rose from the grave conquering death. Do I live my life with the wonderful truth always before me: I live forever. "Death, where is your victory? Death where is your sting?"
Jesus Christ: Son of God who will return for His bride on 'That Day'. Will I be ready? Will I live a life pleasing to my LORD? Will I love the Lord My God with all of my heart, all of my soul, all of my mind? And will I love my neighbors as myself? And will I adhere to the new commandment: to love one another, even as Christ has loved me, that I also love those in my life?
pondering... will I love another as much as I love these?
A little about me
I am in the world almost every day. Okay, daily.
