The good news we are meant to share is that God loves us and is looking out for us no matter what, and that nothing we do, even killing His Son, could ever drive Him from our side!
A message that God is love and
nothing else, love and nothing BUT love! And that He's got us all in
His hand and is bringing us safely through everything, that everything
really will turn out fine for all the whole universe!
Sometimes people make it all
about how bad we are and how angry God is, all about sin and payment and
wrath, when really it's all about LOVE. Love only sees the best, only sees us as pure little children! Love bears all things we could possibly do, Love believes in us no matter what, Love endures to the end of all our misguided acts, and Love never fails us! Love loves us when we can't love ourselves and keeps on saying that we are innocent and 'don't know what we're doing' no matter what we do! Wow!
His mind just isn't on sin or punishment at
all, is it? For He has never seen us as anything but innocent! Love just doesn't see or think or dwell on sin - Love thinks no evil! Love thinks no evil of US! Love thinks only good and beautiful thoughts of us, thoughts of compassion and care, thoughts of blessing and peace, thoughts of giving us the future we hope for..Love thinks of us as "my beloved children, in whom I am well-pleased!"
And He would never harm us..He would
never hurt or wound His dear little children..That is the
FARTHEST thing from the mind of a good father; on the contrary, a good
father is wanting to PROTECT his child at all costs!
The good news
isn't God is going to get you if you don't shape up but that Daddy will
never 'get' you, that He is instead always protecting you and will never let
anything fatally, eternally, happen to you to damage you in any way!
Daddy will protect us, save us, rescue us from
whatever mess happens..
I feel I can hear Him saying to us, like the best father would (and of course, He IS the best!): "Don't worry, little one...I'm holding you, I'm protecting you..I will always be there for you, I will always save you.."
This is, to me, the message of the gospel, the good news of great joy which is for all people, the message of peace from God towards all on earth, and of God's good will toward mankind!
"I WILL ALWAYS SAVE YOU!"
He's got us in His arms and won't let us
This is classic Sparrow Writing . Good To see your back proclaiming the GOOD NEWS my friend ! God has really given you such a wonderful gift of writing .Its such an honor to have known you here on this earth on the internet ( A child of GOD /A Sister in Christ Jesus ) over the last 7or8 years or so .So many people would be so blessed to read your blog and hear such good news . This article hits me right where I need it . I need to know for sure that the maker of the universe really loves me no matter what thru Jesus Christ . I know he does! I have read the scriptures that prove its true and Your writings always back up what Ive read and believe in my heart .ReplyDelete
Ive never met you In person here on earth and probably never will but I feel so connected to you in the spirit . I know we will be best of friends in heaven when we meet for sure . There is so much hope for the future knowing we will be with the lord in paradise . Its so exciting ! and a little scary to but there is no stopping it , Its coming . You cant stop Writing about something soooo Good !
Ive read every one of your blog post and look forward to all your future post .
Mathew you always encourage me so much, my brother, and there have been times when I wanted to give up blogging and your words of encouragement have helped me so much..isn't it great to know we have this internet family of brothers and sisters that we are so close to even though we have never met in person! You are right, the reunion in heaven will be so wonderful as we all get to meet! It is such a relief to me to know that He will get us home for sure, for He is the best Dad in the world and wouldn't let any of His kids get lost on the way but would not rest till they were all home safely..that is such a comfort to me and when I think of how any good father would act with his children, it's just so simple and clear that God would do the same..how MUCH MORE would our Dad in heaven make sure that we all arrive safely home!! Isn't He the best? It fills me with so much peace and assurance, more than ever before, Mathew! I am so glad He will not let anyone be left out in the cold but will make sure we're safely home and cuddled up safe and warm in His great big lap..ReplyDelete
