for God so loved the world….

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Lord, why do you love the world? Why do you love the rapists, murderers, torturers, wife-beaters, fundamentalists, zealots, bigots, self-righteous pricks, racists, and extremists of this world? Why did you give your one and only Son as sacrifice to save us?

If I were you, I would wipe out this whole earth and start again. Create another Adam, another Eve. Create creatures who will not hurt You so deeply and rebel against you. Creatures who will not do evil in Your sight.

Yet, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9

I am so grateful that You are who You are: “..”The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness,” Exodus 34:6

I am still here because of Your grace and mercy.
