Why Jesus?

I was eight years old when I was born again. I was at church camp and the teacher was talking to us about Jesus, and the suffering of the cross that He endured just for us. As a child I can remember intently listening to the message and taking it all in. As she explained the sufferings of Jesus and all that He had to go through my heart was breaking, I almost couldn't bear to hear it, (even to this very day it is very hard for me to think about Jesus and the torture that He had to endure) tears were streaming down my face, but when she got to the part of the joy and victory of His resurrection and how Jesus defeated the devil, my tears were now tears of joy instead of sorrow.

When it was time to come to the altar and pray, I got right up and knelt down at the altar and my prayer as an 8 year old child went something like this:

Jesus, I am so sorry that you had to go through all that suffering and pain because of sin. And you did that just for me and the whole world. Thank you Jesu…

"ONE DAY"

One day, one glorious day all eyes will see and the world will know, the heavens will open up and all will behold the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Though the world may hate you and blaspheme your name, one day they will know. One glorious day every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

The mountains will melt like wax in your presence as they bow before you. The arrogance and pride of man will bow before the Lord. One day, one glorious day there will be no hiding from your glorious presence. Rebellion will bow, pride will bow, hatred will bow. All living creatures will bow one day, one glorious day.

There will be no more denying that You are God over all, for the Truth will be made known. All life from it's beginning to its end will one day know that it was your love, your mercy and your grace that kept them and sustained them and was patient with them. One day, one glorious day we will all know for we will ALL SEE YOUR GLORY AND BOW!
