What if God never sent His Son Jesus to this earth? What if Jesus did not walk this earth to share the good news?
What would our world look like without this miraculous event?
With Easter being this Sunday, it made me ponder this question.
I look around at the world. It seems so hopeless at times. The world is so full of our sinful nature. Hatred, murder, stealing, lying, and cheating are all around us. I believe the earth would not exist today without His love and mercy that saved us from sinful selves. We need Jesus.
I was thinking of the days of Noah when there was such evil on earth. Mankind could not exist with it. God saved humanity from self-destructing.
God loved us enough to send us Jesus. Jesus showed us what it is to truly love our neighbor. Jesus walked this life to show us truth and righteousness. Jesus gave us examples to show us it can be done. He gave us His written Word so that we could see God’s heart. Jesus came as a humble servant, then died for us the most brutal death, crucifixion. He gave us His life so we could live with Him. He then gave us the Holy Spirit so we don’t have to walk alone.
Through my faith in Jesus Christ, I am forgiven. I am glad God loved me enough to come into this fallen world. I am thankful, I don’t have to say, What if?….
He loves you too, right where you are at. You don’t have to walk alone when you accept Jesus.
God’s Word-John 3:16- “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. (ESV)
