The stars must think us mad! Because, we who were created in the image of the Creator, feel so alone. Do we not know that a star has never felt the warmth of another star? Yet, they continue to shine because they long to bring glory to God. All of creation looks at us, and they see how loved we are by the Creator, and they must wonder “Why do these souls feel so alone, when they have Him who is everything?”

Let us never forget that Christ came down in the form of man, because He chose to love us above all, because we were the ones who God made in His image, and said “They are very good.” and now that Christ died for us, God looks at us and calls us “beloved.”

The garden of Gethsemane // The place where Jesus wept. Gethsemane means oil press. In the time of Christ (as it still is now) it was filled with Olive trees. Located next to the garden was an Oil press where Olive Oil was made. Just as the olives where crushed, Jesus was for you and me. I bawled my eyes out. He did it for all of humanity. He thought of me. He pleaded with God three times to stop His inevitable future. He is such a beautiful saviour. No words can explain His grace, mercy and compassion on us all.

“If someone were to look at your life would they say the greatest thing you appreciate about God is that He, through the Word of God and through the Spirit, that He has seen fit to teach you. Do you treat His Word, His written will – His revealed will – as the most precious gift that was given to you? And do you dive into It like me into a box of chocolates? The only thing Jonathan Edwards and I have in common, other than saving grace, is that he was a chocoholic and so am I. You
give me chocolate, I devour it. Can you appreciate – do you appreciate – the Word of God, because you have nothing but the Word. You have nothing but the fact that He opens up His mouth and teaches you, and what comes out of that mouth your life depends upon it.

Oh, young Christian person. You want to wear Christian t-shirts, sing Christian music, and hang around Christian friends, but how many of you will wear out a Bible and say, “I must know this lest I die?” The most compassionate thing He can ever do for you is reveal Himself to you. And He’s done that, if you are a believer, through His Spirit and through the Word. Now the most horrifying judgment God can send against you is to close Himself off from you and tell you nothing. To hide from you. To let you go on with just enough Christianity to soothe your defiled conscious, and yet you know not the truth. You live a Christianity that is no Christianity at all and you cannot see how false your life is.”
