Our Awesome God

Friends,
May we all be full of awe and gratefulness that the great King and Creator of the universe came to earth to be born of a virgin and live amongst us as a sinless human… all for our sakes, that He might take the punishment of God’s wrath against sin. For “The Word became flesh and lived for a while among us. We have seen His glory, the glory of the one and Only Begotten Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth… No one has ever seen God, but God the only begotten Son, who is at the Father’s side, has made Him known.” (John 1:14,18)

“For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross.” (Col. 1:19,20) “For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.” (2:9) Isn’t this amazing?!!! That the Great God of Heaven stooped to come as a baby?! All for our sakes! That we sinners could be reconciled to a holy, majestic, perfect, unfathomable-awesome Being who loves us so much that He provided a way for there to be communion, fellowship, relationship… between Him and us?! Because of Jesus, the mediator (1 Tim. 2:5) –who is 100% man and 100% God.

It is so incredibly wondrous, exceedingly amazing…!

So may we all bow our hearts, our wills, our lives to His Lordship. And though His goodness and love and mercy are beyond our comprehension, may we seek to glimpse it. Glimpse it as often as we can. And tell others to seek also.

Love,
Rachel
