A Present :-)

~1 Corinthians 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Those who do not have a relationship with God cannot understand the idea of God loving His creation so much that He would be willing to die for them. Therefore, when you tell other unsaved teens about Christ and His life, death, burial and resurrection, they think you are crazy. They think you are religious nuts with no common sense.

But to the believer, Christ’s sacrifice is so significant that you should be brought to tears! To think that Someone would die for you, teen girl, despite your sinful life – despite how much you have hurt Him! It shows just how much God truly loves you!

~Romans 5:6) For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

~Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

Christ died for you, teen girl, while you were a sinner – there is nothing you can do to make yourself “good enough” for His wonderful gift of salvation! It is free – it is priceless – it is eternal!

My son took this picture above when visiting Monticello, Virginia. As I saw the sun’s rays piercing through the rain clouds, it reminded me of God’s precious love reaching down to man through His Son, Jesus Christ. There is no place that God’s hand cannot reach – His loves reaches down to the deepest depths!

~Jeremiah 23:24 Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the LORD.
