This was one of many in a list of “what ifs” I received in an email today. Here’s one of the nearly 800 website that has the poem posted in its entirety http://www.fpcwcho.com/InspirationIF.htm.
All the statements were thought provoking. But the one above really hit me strong.
It is my hearts desire to show people – especially those in my family – the freedom and joy that comes from focusing everything in my life on Christ. It’s hard for some to understand what I mean when I say I live for Christ because there is no other reason to live.
Without Christ I am nothing. I cannot love my husband or my children all the time, unconditionally, without focusing on Christ. He is life. And he is the source of life in me. I’m a very pathetic person without him. I’ve been there and don’t wish anyone to ever see me that way again. It’s morbid.
So, what if God didn’t send Jesus to die for us? How would your life be different? Or would it?
He must become greater; I must become less.
