God’s Marriage Proposal

I know, it’s Christmastime and Boxing Day sales are creeping up even ‘before’ Christmas!!!

Some people ask me how come God had to come as a baby. Why did He need to do something as drastic as that? Well, I guess I could try to explain it this way:

I love my wife… terribly. I remember how much I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. I hardly had any money but I got a ring and asked her to marry me… and she said “Yes!”

Would she have said yes if I sent a messenger? Or maybe in a letter? Would she have jumped for joy if I had sent her an email or text message? Probably not. It was SO important to me that ‘I’ needed to do it!

John 3:16 says that “God so loved the world the He sent His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.” That’s how much God loves us and that’s why He sent Jesus… No other way could He express His love for us but to come and tell us Himself… through Jesus.

At least that’s how I see it,

Craig
