Dear Mrs. Kelly,
One of the sweet children that I am privileged to serve gave this to me.
What do you see?
Well, of course you see three crosses with people all around them.
So do I.
But I see more. I see the whole world. A world around me full of people that need to be led to the foot of the cross.
How beautiful that a child can see that....how beautiful that God would allow me to have the privilege of doing just that..."leading people to the cross". He could do things any other way....He is God. He could as some believe, chose whom He will and whom He will not save, and I could watch as though I was in the audience of a marvelous play.
But no, He not only loves me so much He died for me...He receives pleasure from using me to reach them. Even though He could do it if He wanted to all by himself-He is God. That is not how He wants to do it at all!
He allows me to chose to obey Him, and he allows them the choice to receive Him! It is perfect, because He is perfect! Died He for me who caused His shame! Amazing love! How can it be? That thou my God should die for me?
It is only by His grace that I can do anything at all, and I am so thankful for it! So thankful I want to tell the whole world about Him!
I am also thankful for the little girl with the markers and a heart for the lost world.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever should believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Thank you Lord,
For your sovereign plan to use sinful me to bring sinners to you! May you use me as you want! Help me to always see the world how you see the world! Amen!
