In the Beginning

02/10/2011 17:03:38: In the beginning God already decided that He would create us and He knew that we would rebel against Him. He knew this before the creation of the world and He knew that we would need someone to save us. That someone is His only eternal Son Jesus, who then became a man to die on the cross for us as God intended.
THE CROSS is the very center of God's glorious plan. The cross wasn't some "Plan B" to fix what went wrong at the Garden. Before time began, before the creation of the whole universe, before the creation of all the living beings in both physical and spiritual world, God has already decided to display His glory through the cross as part of His perfect and eternal plan.
The God who created the plants, the animals, the seas, the planets, the gravity and countless stars in the sky is the very same God who was despised, spat upon, slapped, rejected and was crucified on the cross by His own creations. And He was willing to go through all these because He simply loves us. The path that He took to go to the cross is the only way to pay the demand of justice. It is the only way for fallen mankind to be redeemed and to be restored back to Himself.
And what's even more mind-boggling than the vastness of the universe and the countless stars out there is the fact that its Creator came down into this world to redeem wretched sinners such as you and I. I just can't comprehend such love.
Its is so...INDESCRIBABLE! (John 3:16)  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.
