In the midst of packing, I found myself taking a break only to spend 11 heart-breaking minutes watching this. Tears found their way down my face and I am still teary-eyed…
Bring me joy
Bring me peace
Bring the chance to be free
Bring me anything that brings you glory
And I know there’ll be days when this life brings me pain
But if that’s what it takes to praise you
Jesus, bring the rain
“There is only one reason for God to come himself, because in issues of love, you just can’t have someone else stand in for you.”
I have never thought of this in quite the same light. How amazing that God came. God came because He is love.
Think on this. You’re madly in love. You met, became friends, and started dating. He brings you flowers for no reason at all. You take long walks and talk about anything and everything. He takes you on dates. He teaches you new things and you learn about each other along the way. Your community (friends, church, family) actively engage and advise on your relationship. Everything is going perfectly. You want to spend the rest of your life together.
His friend shows up at your door with flowers and a ring. He proposes to you for your love. What!? I don’t think so! I, for one, would not be happy at all if someone else proposed for him. Even more, I would be sad that he was not there.
So, in all reality, it makes sense that God came. He came to show His love.
