I sit by my desk right now looking out to an amazing crisp blue sky with sun blazing down. It is beautiful and in sharp contrast of what is bearing down on me. There is a winter storm fast approaching and we are being warned way ahead to take precaution while traveling the next two days. 8-10 inches of snow with ice and cold winter winds…so I for one head the warning of the people who know more about the weather than I do. Yet we as humans refuse to listen to those with more knowledge about God than us. We ignore the pleas to believe, to surrender all to gain all. Not feeling like I could give up everything, there is so much to give up yet the opposite is true you would gain so much more. Because with this you will take away the warmth of a love that know no boundaries, it can never run out and it is always there when you need it. It is the love of our heavenly Father and the only way to receive this great gift is to believe that He loved us so much that He sent his OWN SON to die a death that would kill sin forever no price would ever half to be paid again.
New International Version (NIV)
1 John 4:9
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
