You’ve heard the expression, right?
Someone suggests you just have to try such and such because “it’s to die for.”
Personally, I don’t like the expression because at 72 years old I want things “to live for!”
Can I get a witness!
I want to share something with you that just about rattled me this morning. It was in a song sung by young people on stage at church. The drums played, the guitars strummed, and the singer belted out the words…
I’m to die for – You’re to die for.
Two Thousand Years Ago
The Lord Jesus Christ looked around Him, looked into the past, looked into the future and saw me.
He saw you too.
And, He said,
They’re to die for.
He walked the road to Golgotha with His back and face and limbs shred by a beating with a cat of 9 tails whip, He laid on a crossbeam as Roman soldiers nailed His hands and feet to hard, splintered wood. He wept salty tears, which burned and stung His wounds and He didn’t utter a word in defense.
But, I know without doubt, His thought was this…
Father, they are to die for.
You were – I was
For God so loved the world He gave His One & Only Son to die on a rugged cross – so that anyone who would believe in Him would not die but have everlasting life. John 3.16
He thought we were to die for.
No one has ever loved me like that.
Kindness & Hope,
