Here is a Wow! thought I’m still pondering. I think of this earth as being so big – and it is. I think of the billions of people on this earth as being so many – and we are. Then I think of the world – the entire cosmos – with all its planets, stars, constellations, and galaxies, and realize just how small is the earth, and how miniscule the inhabitants in comparison to the vast sum of the universe.
Yet, Creator God, our heavenly Father, chose earth for humanity. He chose earth for relationship. He chose earth for His Son to be born, live, and die on. And, out of the entire universe – before He ever created any of it – He saw me living on planet earth in 2011, and knew I would need Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross.
Compared to the vastness of all He created, this one human being isn’t even a speck. But Daddy doesn’t compare me to anyone or anything. He sees me, Kay Stocking, and He loves me – fully, unconditionally, and eternally. For God so loved Kay . . .1 Wow!
That place of the skull, Golgotha, is but the end of a street outside Jerusalem now. That nearby garden tomb is empty now. This life that was empty and meaningless before, though, is now full and overflowing forever – because of the finished work of my Jesus Christ! Glory be to my God! Glory be to my Savior!
