After tagging five blogging buddies to get their responses to three questions, I must let you know my answers. When I posed these questions to you I thought my answers would be quickly forthcoming but I've had to think a lot about my responses.
Anyhow, here they are:
1. What comes to mind/what is your heart's response when you think of or hear the word..."CALVARY"?
The place where the greatest demonstration of love and the most lopsided transaction in history took place. A holy God gave His sinless Son to redeem rebellious, lost, fallen man. It cost God His beloved Son but we paid nothing. The whole course of world and human history was dramatically changed forever...at Calvary.
"Mercy there was great and grace was free,
Pardon there was multiplied to me.
There my burdened soul found liberty
2. What would you like to have inscribed on your tombstone?
"This godly, authentic, honest man fought the fight, finished the course and kept the faith and is now rejoicing in the presence of Jesus."
Note: I posed this question to my mentor, Paul Collet, and his response was brief but powerful. He would like one word on his tombstone:
3. Which attribute of God do you find yourself revelling in the most?
God's amazing, unconditional, relentless love which causes Him to pursue us for Himself...relentlessly. "I scarce can take it in."
