I had a dream last night. I was at a church and everyone was singing praise songs. There were some people there who were bored and didn’t want to be there. They were talking and asking among themselves why all the fuss about Jesus?
I began to speak to one of them. I spoke with conviction and with as much sincerity as I could muster (in my dream). I said (paraphrased because I can’t remember the exact words)…
Imagine you find yourself in a court of law. You are on trial for breaking numerous laws all of which carry the death penalty. Your defense attorney is there and tells you that there isn’t much hope of winning the case because all the evidence is iron-clad. You are guilty of breaking these laws. Your defense attorney goes on to say that there is really only one option at this point. He approaches the judge and asks to take the penalty that you deserve and further asks the judge to set you free. The judge agrees.
THAT is why we love Jesus because THAT is what He did for us. He didn’t have to, He WANTED to. It was the only way we could be saved.
Then I woke up.
My blog asks, “Can a man fly AND love Jesus? You’d better believe it!” And know you know why. And I plead with you… believe it.
