It sometimes seems that why is a child’s favorite word! What a shame that we don’t use it when we should. We should ask questions like “Why did Christ have to leave heaven? why did He have to die on earth?’ Today’s devotional will help you look at these. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
“And do you seek great things for yourself? Seek them not, for behold, I am bringing disaster upon all flesh, declares the Lord. But I will give you your life as a prize of war in all places to which you may go.”
“Because we children of Adam want to become great,
He became small.
Because we will not stoop,
He humbled Himself.
Because we want to rule,
He came to serve.”
