Oh, How He Loves Us
There is no rhyme or reason to the photographs in this blog entry, so don't try to make any sense of them in connection with the words I have written. These are simply pictures I have taken recently that I wished to share with you.
He is jealous for me, loves like a hurricane, I am tree
Bending beneath the weight of His wind and mercy
God doesn't want us to have any other gods besides Him. Why? Because He is the only good God as Jesus said in Mark 10:18, and God wants us to have nothing but the very best, which is why He gave Himself for us. The best love, the surest rest, the truest comfort is in Jesus Christ.
Every message I preach draws me closer to the eye of the hurricane of God's love. I don't understand it, but when I am trying to express the ineffable greatness of God's character and nature and the Finished Work gospel message, I get caught up in the realization that He loves me. If He did not love me, how would I be able to stand in front of a gathering of His precious saints and open my mouth and have Him fill it?
