Famine that ravages thousands
Cancer that is no respecter of race, gender or wealth
Typhoons that wipe out homes and livelihoods
Abuse of children and the elderly
Torture of the mind, body and spirit
Loneliness that dries up the soul
Is this what God had planned?
When God made the Garden and all in it
It was for his pleasure and fellowship with his highest creation- mankind
He called it all GOOD.
There was relationship, love, abundance and peace.
So what happened?
Man has tried to live without God
Who needs a crutch? they say
We are our own destiny
We have all the power within us, we boast
And look where it has got us….
We are made in God’s image
To love, feel, think, reason and have a choice
God made a way for life to have hope again
He took on the form of mankind
And through his sacrificial death he appeased the wrath of God
He then rose again the third day-
Finished the task he was on earth to accomplish
Now he says,
I am the Way
And the Life
No one comes to the Father but by me.
And he leaves the choice to follow with us.
