WHAT IF

WHAT IF
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

 What if God worked half-hearted measures in half-hearted people?
What if our …
Fickleness,
Faithlessness,
Frailties,
and
Fears
Resulted in a Holy divorce?
God separating Himself;
Serving papers,
Calling it quits,
Drawing the line.
Done,
Complete,
Over,
Final.
No more abiding together.
----
What if God loving man depended on man loving God?
Then what?
Hmmm ...
Dismal,
Distressing,
Depressing,
Disheartening.
We don’t have what it takes to love God
Decidedly,
Deservedly,
Deliberately,
For even one day.
----
God implemented a full-hearted strategy to love half-hearted people.
He named His plan Jesus …
His Son, our Savior.
His life-blood, our hope.
His nearness, our need.
His love, our remedy.
The act of reconciliation in the Holy ceremony called salvation.
----
God made a full way to love half-hearted man
And ...
God will always be the better half;
And “you” will always be the half He loves.
----

“For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men,
the man Christ Jesus.
Who gave Himself a ransom for all …”
1 Timothy 2:6-7a
