You Were The Reason

mar 29“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 (NIV)

Not much is said in the Bible about Jesus’ childhood, so when I went to the theatre to watch ‘Young Messiah,’ I was delighted to see that He was depicted as a semi-normal young boy. Semi-normal because He was, after all, the Son of God, who lived some of the same experiences as normal human beings do.

The boy would go out in the street to play with his friends; He was a victim of bullying; He had closer friends and relatives with whom He interacted more regularly. Two things, however, were clear evidence of the fact that the boy wasn’t just “any boy.” First, Jesus never displayed fear against the enemy, who, by the way, was present in almost every scene. Second, even when He still did not understand why some things happened to Him and not to others (like bringing another boy to life), He displayed compassion and love to others to such a great extreme, that He would heal them.

Ah, love so great, so divine, that would drive the Lord God in heaven to forego the pleasure of having His only Son beside Him, to watch Him grow and to help Him when He scraped a knee or was attacked by a band of bullies; to sit proudly as He heard His Son quote His first portions of Scripture in the synagogue, and all those little things that make the bond between Father and Son so special!

Dear sister, it was His love for you! It was God’s desire that you do not perish, but instead, get the opportunity to spend eternity with Him in Heaven. That is why He willingly sent His little boy to this earth to show His power of redemption and healing; to show His love and forgiveness and His comfort. You were the reason. The cross proved it. You are loved by a God with outstretched arms.

“Thank You for being a loving God, Abba. No one else on earth would do what You did for us. Your love is amazing. We magnify Your name, for You are great.”

For His Glory
