We are all a Thought of God
edit_button

What really bothers me is hearing people say "Why must I follow Jesus"? But, why wouldn't you. Jesus Christ, our God, created us out of nothing. He gave us the gift of life, and so that we might one day enter His presence in Heaven, Our Savior laid down His life to the last drop of His Blood.

As Our Lord carried His Cross with His body being ripped apart with beatings, He was thinking of you. All the time, as nails were slammed into his skin, He was offering to the Father His own death so that you might be redeemed for your sins. He died so that we might not have to go to eternal death.

With that said, I wanted to share some words by Pope Benedict XVI:

"The purpose of our lives is to reveal God to men. And only when God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution. Each of us is the result of a thought of God. Each of us is willed, each of us is loved, each of us is necessary."

I second that hoorah by ukok! Beautiful words by the Holy Father. I've always pondered the reality of being in God's thoughts before I was even conceived. One of my favorite is Jeremiah 1:5, ""Before I formed you in the womb I knew you".

Thank you for this post and God bless you Moneybags
