Why Did He Do That?


Why_Maybe you are familiar with them. If you have a young child at home, you get and have a lot of questions. Maybe you can answer them. Maybe, just maybe, you no longer have questions you need to ask. Not me! I have plenty of questions. Some questions are serious, some are rhetorical, and some, like the following, just exist:

  • In the United States, why do we drive on parkways and park in driveways?
  • Why do convenience stores who are open 24/7 – 365 days of the year have locks on the doors?
  • Why when something comes by train, boat, or air it is cargo, but when by truck or over the road it is a shipment?

I realize the ridiculous nature of these questions, but there is one more. A question that disturbs me deep inside. A question I will never get the answer too until that day I see my Creator face to face. A question that moves me to action . . .

What motivates a righteous God to give His only Son of perfect righteousness to offer salvation to sinners – like me? (cf. 2 Cor 5:21; Rom 7:24-25) Why did He do that?

  1. You know the answer to that mind blowing question. Why? Why me? Why mankind? It gives me goosebumps, makes me drop to my knees, makes me realize who I am and who He is, all because He loves us. He loves me! Wrote a blog, on 1.23, called Does God Smile, exactly…oh the deep deep love of God. How we don’t get it, yet so incredibly thankful for!!!!! May we demonstrate His love for us towards others!
    Enjoy your posts!!!
