Right now I'm at an Internet cafe' which works out to be quite costly and restrictive and I have to rush things which isn't the ideal way to write. So please forgive me and know that I am trying to get things sorted out.
I've missed all the letters between "F" and "J" but hopefully I can get caught up soon.
Well let me tell you about a man called Jesus, and how I see this man's relationship with God and me.
Now according to scripture Jesus was or should I say is the son of God and since he is the son of God he has all the attributes of God himself. Now if God does not sin and his son is as he himself is then the son cannot sin either and therefore obeyed all God's commands and fulfilled all the law of God but was still killed by the people of the world anyway and landed up being despised and hated. Now since I'm very restricted in time to write this post I'm going to have to explain very briefly how I think God thinks when He looks at us.
When God looks at us I think what he sees is how we,as imperfect beings,struggle through this life taking all the nonsense thrown at us by other people. He sees our hurts and pain, our fears and challenges and then He looks at his son and sees how even though he was absolutely perfect and without sin the world rejected him and killed him.
I think that what God says when looking at us in our struggle to overcome sin is "I know how you are struggling and how the rest of your so called friends mock and belittle you behind your back and I also know how unloved you feel right now but in the same way they rejected my son who was perfect and I continued to love him so too will I love you even though the rest of humanity rejects you. I love you unconditionaly."
My prayer for the people of the world is for strenght to remain faithful to Jesus and to have the strength to trust God and his amazing son Jesus.
God does love us and would rather have us with him in his kingdom that bannished to eternal hell.
