Last Sunday morning during our Communion Service, the leader chose part of John 15:22 as his text – If I had not come. Although the words of Jesus were taken out of context, they still made us think. If Jesus had not come our lives and the world would be very different today. All the good things would be missing – kindness, consideration, love or sharing good things. We would just be left with the bad things – wars, selfishness or dishonesty. Life would take on the effect of the ‘lowest common denominator’.
If He had not come, there would be no hope of life after death. He says in John 14:2 In my Father’s house there are many rooms, I am going there to prepare a place for you. If He had not come this life is all there would be. A sombre thought.
So let’s give thanks that He did come.
Carol, the thankful
