 As the Passover season approaches, we as members of God's church, start to reflect on the tremendous sacrifice of our Savior Jesus Christ.  As I reflect, I am continually amazed at the love of our Lord.  Here are a few simple thoughts on this subject.

 

 Let me start by quoting Rev. 13:8, “And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”  In this passage, it tells us before the world was ever formed that Jesus looked through time and knew we would need an atonement for our sins.  What an awesome God we serve!

 

 In Gen. 2: 7, the creation of man is recorded.  As I think back to that time I feel very small as I see my Savior kneeling and forming the feet, knowing they would run to evil and make haste to shed blood (Prov. 1: 16 ). What an awesome God we serve!

 

 As He formed the mouth and tongue, He knew the lies to be told against Him and the mocking words He would hear.  What an awesome God we serve!

 

 As He formed the hands, He knew the terrible beating He would receive, the crown of thorns they would weave, and the hammer and nails they would hold to fasten him to that torture stake.  What an awesome God we serve!

 

 As He lovingly breathed life into that lump of clay, He knew it would ultimately cost Him His own.  But He loved us so much that the benefit far outweighed the price He would pay.  What benefit, you say?  Extending the family of God is the conclusive end to His sacrifice. What an awesome God we serve!

 

 There is a verse in a song that says, "He grew the tree He knew would be used to make the old rugged cross."

 

 Truly we serve an awesome God!     

 

Our God is An Awsome God
