The love and mercy and forgiveness that God offers us through Jesus Christ is so great, so wonderful, that we can’t really fully understand it! We certainly don’t DESERVE it! None of us are “good” enough to deserve forgiveness of sins and His gift of Eternal Life to us! Yet it is ours for the asking if we will only believe on Him, repent of our selfish, wrong ways and ask His forgiveness.–Such love!

When I was doing some research for a writing project, I came across something that jolted me. It was a familiar Bible verse which I’ve read, heard, and even quoted hundreds of times, but when meditating on it, thinking of its practical application and the enormity of the consequences of ignoring it, I more fully realized its importance. And being guilty of this very thing, it frightened me.

Matthew 6:14–15 says:

A boy once asked his father, “Dad, how do wars begin?”

“Well, take the First World War,” said his father. “That got started when Germany invaded Belgium.”
