Our God is beyond amazing.
There is nothing to do but stand in awe
and fall to your knees in worship.
As if the life God has given us were not enough . . .
He offers us ETERNAL life through Jesus, and yet
we often think He's a great Savior,
just not a great role model:
*We passionately love Jesus,
but we don't really want to be like Him.
*We admire His humility,
but we don't want to be THAT humble.
*We think it's beautiful that He
washed the feet of the disciples,
but that's not exactly the direction
our life is headed.
*We're thankful He was spit upon
and abused, but we would never
let that happen to us.
*We praise Him for loving us enough
to suffer during His whole time on earth,
but we're going to do everything within
our power to make sure we
enjoy our time down here.
("Crazy Love" by Francis Chan)
Each and everyday we must come
to the foot of the Cross.
Our lives are not our own . . .
we were purchased with a price.
It's all about surrender . . .
and after watching this video,
after trying, unsuccessfully,
to grasp the magnificence of God . . .
how can we not live our lives as a daily sacrifice
to the One who took our place? . . .
the One who wraps us in His Amazing Grace.
