One day, my friend asked me “Why your God seems doesn’t make any sense, there are, father, son and the spirit” Mmmh This was a question that always be asked, but maybe lots of information he got but maybe he didn’t understand it. I didn’t blame him.
Supposed that we are asked “Do you think that there will be a friend who wants to die for you?
Probably some people said No, but few said Yes, I said Yes as well. I said yes because the only one who can do it is Jesus. He’s done it for me because he is a good shepherd wanna die for his sheep. I am one of his sheep, I belong to him as it’s said in John 10:14-15:
“I am the good shepherd as my Father knows me and I know my Father, in the same way I know my sheep and they know me and I’m willing to die for them.“
The crucifixion of Jesus showed me that he is a good shepherd who wants to die to redeem our sins. But it seems nonsense for worldly people as it was said in Bible (John 10:25)
”Jesus answered, “I have already told you, but you wouldn’t believe me. The deeds I do by my Father’s authority speak on my behalf; but you will not believe, for you are not my sheep. My sheep listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me. Give them eternal life, and they shall never die. No one can snatch them away from me. What my Father given is greater than everything and no one can snatch them away from Father’s care. The Father and I are one”
I believe in You Jesus, coz you want to die for me, and Your crucifixion as a symbol of our life. We should bring our cross along this life but we never be alone because You’re always be with us. It makes me comfort, coz I have friend that always be with me who always help me to go through this life.
I just said a parable to my friend:
“How many email address do you have?” I asked.
“Would you mention what each email is purposed for?”
“The first for my personal relation, second for my outside business relation and the third for my colleagues”
“Ohh that’s great, all are only yours, isn’t it? That’s such how the Father be…”
Maybe he didn’t understand it or didn’t want but I hope he did…Yes but if I was asked “Why your God is being like that (in three individuals)”
I said “I don’t know” and I’ll site as in Bible:
“Such a person really does not understand them, and They seem to be nonsense, because Their value can be judged only in spiritual basis. Whoever has the Spirit, however, is able to judge the value of everything, but no one is able to judge him. As the scripture says,
“Who knows the mind of the Lord?”
Even God Himself is nonsense for everybody. Who knows the mind of the Lord? Lord can make things impossible for worldly people become possible for Him, that our mind cannot measure it, because He is greater than anything. We’re only the smallest thing of the universe, while He is greater than universe itself….
In my heart I said : “It was not the glorious world or gold you redeemed us, but with your loves and sacrifice, how can I not love and follow you God”
“O Lord I’m all yours!”
