Candidate’s Biggest Surprise March 7, 2016

The long, hard fought campaign to elect the next president of the United States is fascinating, Along with the anger, the stunning and sometimes shocking comments, there is much to cause reflection. During a television interview, one of the leading candidates was asked his greatest surprise so far. He answered that it was seeing the love that Americans have for America. I think of an even greater love and the surprise that love produces- that God loves you and me, in spite of our unworthiness and waywardness. It is a love so great that He sent His Son to redeem us. A beautiful gospel song says, “There’s the wonder of sunset at evening, the wonder as sunrise I see; but the wonder of wonders that thrills my soul, is the wonder that God loves me.” Those words reflect the great truth of John 3:16 , “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.”
