Being a believer is a responsibility. Christianity is not a therapy to make things go better. Christianity is not there when you need it, or there for you when things are going bad. Daily, we need to give thanks. Daily we need to love God. Daily we need to be in prayer with Him. God speaks to us daily. God has given us His son. He sent His Son to die on the cross for us! I am not a parent. I do not know the love of my own child. I do however have a beautiful niece and 2 amazing nephews, and I could not imagine God asking me to give my Child for the rest of the Earth. I could not fathom knowing that one of them were going to die for the ENTIRE world. Here's the kicker. He didn't just die for the believers, he did not die for the "Christians". He died so that ALL may come to the Father through Him. But, you must have faith and believe that is the ONLY way to heaven. It is difficult to think through the process of what Mary must of been thinking. Mary, His mother, watch her child, a blameless man, be put on trial for nothing, then he was beaten, almost to death, then that wasn't enough. Then they crucified Him. Killed Him. That was God's plan, but what was Mary thinking? She didn't know the whole plan. She didn't know what His death truly meant. What could Mary of done? How could she, as a mother watch this happen to her Child?
Love to all!
