How much do you need?

I will never forget a short children’s message I heard one Christmas, not when I was a child, but asking the question: How much do you need before you accept Christ?  All the wise men had was a star!

When you have seen what He has done.  When His irresistible grace has drawn you.  When you understand that ALL your guilt, ALL your faults, all your failings, have been washed away in the flow of the mighty love of Jesus, then not to come to Him leaves you condemned, until you decide!  Jesus said to Nicodemus that those who do not believe stand condemned already.  It’s an uncomfortable thing to find that we are condemned, and yet it’s a wonderful thing to know we can just as quickly be forgiven, and cleansed, and set right again.  Set me right today Lord, remind me today of the love you have set upon me so kindly and so undeservedly.

The star that led the wise men is a powerful image.  More about it here

About stayingfaithful

I am looking for anything that relates to life and to a fuller life. I am bored by the normal and the natural and interested in the supernatural. There must be more than this. We were put on this earth for more than a nine to five prison, as someone said a few years ago.
