Is It Nothing To You…?

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)

 

***       ***       ***       ***       ***

 

Is it nothing to you?

That he took your place,

That he died for you,

For the whole human race?

 

Is it nothing to you?

That he came down from high

And resolved to suffer

Yes, resolved to die?

 

Is it nothing to you?

That his hands were nailed

‘Cos you’d fallen short

‘Cos God’s law you’d failed?

 

Is it nothing to you?

That he drank Wrath’s cup

That he drained every drop

Sin required you to sup?

 

Is it nothing to you?

The cross of Calvary

The pain and price he paid

To set you wholly free?

 

Is it nothing to you?

That they pierced his feet,

And punctured his side,

That he suffered all this

To make you his Bride?

 

But if it all means nothing

Which could well be the case—

I have one final question before you go

Do you know anyone else who loves you so?

Dear reader, do you know Jesus loves you? Do you accept that he loved you more than his own life? That is why he died for you and for me. If you do not have a relationship with Jesus Christ but would like to, all you need to do is ask. You can do so in your own words, or you can say the following prayer:

Father God,

I want to have a relationship with you. Thank you for loving me and sending your son Jesus to die for me. Jesus, I invite  you into my heart.  I invite you into my life as my Saviour and my Lord. Thank you for saving me. Amen.

If you have prayed the above, welcome to the family of God! May I encourage you to visit my other blog and read my post: (Paradise Lost or Paradise Regained?). This will help you understand more about the step you have taken and provide links to help you with your recent decision to accept Jesus into your life. I wish you God’s strength, peace and favour during the coming days.

And to those who have already made Jesus their Lord, are you enjoying the abundant life for which Jesus died, so we may have? As we continue to walk with him, may we remember daily the price he paid… may we remember we are not our own, that we have been bought with a price (His precious blood) and may we be motivated daily to walk as victorious overcomers!

Women of Warfare (WoW!) followers and visitors – have a wonderful Easter break.

Author:

First and foremost, I am a committed follower of Christ and as long as God’s breath remains in me, I aim to live a purpose-driven life. Like most aspiring writers, I love reading and the creative buzz of word-weaving. I’d like to consider myself as a word-artist. I’m fascinated by and admire the way skilled writers use words to craft stories, to educate, to positively influence and inspire others. I aspire to do the same. Having long-cherished a desire to vacate my prior position as once-in-a-blue-moon writer and join the ranks of published authors (albeit self-published), I’m working towards becoming a prolific writer, whose words are feted, followed and feasted upon by fans and word connoisseurs. Confession time – I used to be the queen of procrastination but have lately abdicated my throne. Unfortunately, my former subjects just won’t let me go (please pray for me!). I’m also a recovering perfectionist. Shush! Tell no one! Words are powerful! They have the potential to impart life or orchestrate death. And so my heart's desire is for the ultimate Creator and Wordsmith to use my writing gift for his glory, to infuse my words with his anointing, love and power. As a blogger, I write to encourage and inspire both myself and others—to maximise our potential and live our best lives.
