“H_O_S_A_N_N_A” LOVE!

It’s not my birthday.  It’s not my anniversary.  It’s not Christmas.  And it’s not yet Easter.  So why do I receive?  Why does HE shower me and His people with love?  I [we] have not earned it.  We can’t afford to purchase it.  We certainly do not deserve it.  And we are not entitled to any of it… without His signature.  So why?  Why the gifts?  Why the favor?  Why the blessings?  Why the protection, the provision, the peace?  Why oh why, does Jesus love me [us]?

I have answer…

Over two thousand years ago… The Love of God answered with “H_O_S_A_N_N_A!” 

It wasn’t about Simon Peter.
It wasn’t about Mary Magdalene.
It wasn’t about the Beloved John.
It was all about Jesus Christ!

It was all about… Why He came, Why He died, Why He rose, and How and Why He lived…

It was all for Simon Peter.
It was all for Mary Magdalene.
It was all for the Beloved John.
It was all for the Love of God.

And for today… “H_O_S_A_N_N_A!”

It’s not about me. 
It’s not about you. 
It’s all about HIM…
HE is God!

It’s all about… Why He came, Why He died, Why He rose, and How and Why He lives…

It’s all for me.
It’s all for you.
It’s all for Love!

Then and now… It’s not about you & me, or the saints of old…

Nothing any of us could do or change, that would alter the Love of God toward us.  If it were left up to us, death would be our only option.  But as Jesus has risen, we also, have resurrected life. 

We have all fallen down, misused the grace we’ve been given, left our first love, having traded Him for so many others.  Who among us can say we have not failed to mention our association with “Jesus”, outside the gates of protection or the boundaries of our comfort zone?  And who among you or me, in preparation for the burial of sin at His return, have carried His oil to all points He directs [even destinations unknown] and represented ourselves wholly [holy] as God is Holy?  [We have all fallen to defeat in this battle.]  And who can say by the anointing of their own hand or works, that they justly deserve the favor of the Lord, having reaped and received where they have not sown?  And God gives the gift of the Holy Spirit to whom He pleases.  Who of us have taken issue with His judgment, direction, provision, discernment of gifts, and/or timetable in the answering of such prayers?  No matter how clear our complexions are, we are not without blemish.  Oh Lord, how can we be saved?

I have answer…

It’s not about me. 
It’s not about you. 
It’s all about HIM…
HE is God!
