I once randomly tweeted about how wonderful Sinach’s songs are and the blessedness of listening to her songs, particularly the one entitled “Matchless Love”. Incidentally, I seemed to have tagged her in doing so. Thus, she liked my tweet. When I saw the notification, I was superexcited. I was thrilled, amazed and humbled. It was a mixed bag of emotions, to say the least.
I felt special because out of her myriads of important followers on Twitter, she deemed it fit to like my tweet.
Well, the truth is that God in Heaven sees you as special and precious in His sight. To Him, you are that one person He loves as though there was no one else aside you. Just think for a moment about the vastness of His greatness. Of course, it is an impossible feat, for Paul says, “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!” (Romans 11:33). Just to imagine that a God so great would be mindful of humans so frail is simply mind blowing!
You see, God, in all His majesty and grandeur, cannot possibly relate with us as He wants. So He decided to be like one of us- mortal. He divested Himself of His divinity and clothed Himself with humanity so that we could encounter His divinity despite our humanity. So now, “…He broke the power of death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News.” (2 Timothy 1:10, NLT).
Billy Graham put it this way: If you saw an ant that was struggling to get out of a certain terrible spot and wanted to save it, how would you do it without hurting the ant? You are big; it is small. You risk killing it by simply tapping it with your finger or even a broomstick. How in the world will you be able to save the ant from that tragedy? How will you get it out of its rut? The answer is to become like an ant. Think like the ant. Act like the ant and save the ant.
That’s what God accomplished in sending Jesus, His only begotten Son, to redeem the world from sins. God welcomes you into his family and His Kingdom today. Jesus paid for your sins with His very life. He bought you with His blood that He shed on that God forsaken cross. In fact, when Jesus Christ hung on that cross between two criminals, He had the sentence of death of all humanity charged to His account, despite His sinlessness. Isaiah prophesied, writing that He was wounded for our transgressions and bruised for our iniquities (Isaiah 53:5).
We cannot do anything to earn this great salvation that has been made available to us. You cannot attain unto perfection by your good works. Jesus is your perfection; He finished all the work on the cross. You can only please God by faith in Christ Jesus! Believe in the Name of Jesus and be saved!
