A Burst of Love

Seek God’s kingdom, and all the other things you need will be given to you.–LUKE 12:31

Sometimes God is so touched by what he sees that he gives us what we need and simply that for which we ask. It’s a good thing.

For who would have ever thought to ask God for what he gives? Which of us would have dared to say: “God,would you please hang yourself on a tool of torture as a substitution for every mistake I have ever committed?” And then have the audacity to add: “And after you forgive me, could you prepare me a place in your house to live forever?” And if that wasn’t enough: “And would you please live within me and protect me and guide me and bless me with more than I could ever deserve?” Honestly, would we have the chuztpah to ask for that? . . .Jesus already knows the cost of grace.He already knows the price of forgiveness. but he offers it anyway. Love burst his heart.Why do so many people refuse to accept Christ’s offer of love?Does this diminish his love or defeat the purpose of his love?
