GOD'S CRAZY LOVE!

CHECK THIS OUT, GOD CHOSE TO LOVE US! He didn’t wait for us to get good. He didn’t require us to pay some sort of ransom. Nor did He make us grovel in the dirt of the earth begging for a slight bit of His mercy. None of those things were required, rather as the Apostle Paul tells us, “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8) He loved us and demonstrated that love not through some mushy sentimentality of a Hallmark card, but through the precious, unfathomable, costly and atoning death of His Son, Jesus, the Messiah.

If all this sounds a little crazy well it is! Crazy might not be the best theological term to use, but let’s face it, that kind of demonstration of life-saving love is way beyond normal. It’s a love that is both deep and wide. It is a love that is compassionate and sacrificial. It is a love that is beyond searching out and yet is available to all who will seek it out.  It’s crazy love!

It is this Crazy Love of God that we are going to celebrate with over 230 kids from our community in that great and fun-filled week we call Vacation Bible School. This year, as in years past, we desire to reach out to the kids that enter our doors with the love and grace of our Lord Jesus. Through great music, crafts, games, drama, snacks and mission activity we seek to help each child encounter the Crazy Love of God.

I invite you to get a little crazy with me for a moment and imagine the impact that could be made in the lives of kids, their families and in our entire community if we saw 100’s of kids receive and act upon God’s Crazy Love!


What is needed to make that a reality? Your prayers!
