faith and rest assured that our one true FRIEND is and always will be Jesus. The one we can know understands what we are REALLY going through and who can actually help us. WE can call on Him any time and he will always hear us and give us true comfort in the Comforter. We may wonder if he hears us at times, but never can we doubt the truth , which is that without a doubt He does. We watched a video last night depicting the Crucifixion, Christ's death and Resurrection that really brought it home to all of us. Mia kept saying, "It just isn't fair that he would have to go through all of that for me. When he didn't sin at all." Nolen said, "He could have called down a legion of angels to destroy his enemies, or the mountains to crash down around him killing them all, or had the earth open up and swallow them all instantly, but he CHOSE not to because he wanted to die for us and wanted it to be on purpose. Scott reminded them that it wasn't the nails that kept our savoir on the cross, but it was His will alone.
What a grorious prospect! We are saved not by our own work or by an accident or by a GOD who could have been thwarted, but by a REAL and INTENTIONAL deed that was accomplished and has had immediate and far reaching consequences spanning through generations. Praise God for all of his blessings to us and for showing us all of this real time with the shadow which is friendship.
