The Gift (Meditative Monday)

God forgave and cleansed
Each man, woman, and child
Through Christ on the cross.

You have been restored
Through Christ’s death and resurrection
Just accept His gift.

 

(This haiku is based on 2 Corinthians 5: 18-21.)

God is not the hateful being that many people portray him to be.  He is loving, caring, compassionate, and full of grace and mercy.  He is also great, mighty and Just – what parent doesn’t want justice for their children?  Just as a good parent would forgive his/her child and want to restore them back to the family after they run away from home, God longs to restore each of his children (every human on earth) even after many years of being away.  That is how my God is.  He sees the hurt, anger, and pain deep inside each man, woman, and child which causes them to lash out.  He also sees the tears they shed when no one is around.  He longs to have a relationship with that person, to comfort them, and listen to them.  This is why He sent his Son.

God has given every person on earth a special gift.  He loves each and every man, woman, and child more than we can imagine despite everything we have done.  Through Jesus’ death and resurrection he has cleansed, forgiven, and restored Himself to each individual on this planet.  All we need to do is receive this gift.  Now that is true and unconditional love. ❤
