"For God so loved the world, that He gave...
His only Son" - to a borrowed cave...
...for a world that put Him in that grave.

Why?

Here's an example of love and sin:
With Him, crucified, were two men,
One saw truth and then confessed,
Jesus forgave and he was blessed.
The other, self-centered, without belief,
He loved himself and died a thief.

For man so loves the world, that he takes...
earning each one of his many mistakes...
...in a world where man believes he creates.

Why?

Right here on earth between truth and lie,
We look at 'success' and say, "What a guy!"
Many had thought they could conquer the earth,
or their little corner - but what was it worth?
But God's looking down in the palm of His hand.
He knows His whole world and where we all stand.

Where is our focus and what's our reply?
What is the truth that we seem to deny?
We must look at our lives and then ask ourselves,

'Why'?

For God so loved the world, He gave...
so Who do we love OR what do we crave?
There's nothing in this world to get,
unless to Jesus, we submit;
and if we crave our earthly coffer,
God has nothing else to offer.
It's no secret life's unfair,
so give me faith, Lord
that's my prayer!

Luke 23: 39 One of the criminals who were hanged there was hurling abuse at Him, saying, "Are You not the Christ? Save Yourself and us!" 40 But the other answered, and rebuking him said, "Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41 "And we indeed are suffering justly, for we are receiving what we deserve for our deeds; but this Man has done nothing wrong." 42 And he was saying, "Jesus, remember me when You come in Your kingdom!" 43 And He said to him, "Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise."

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
