Lent ‘11

Lent ’11

"By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren." 1 John 3:16.

There was a blind girl who hated herself because of her blindness.

Not only did she hate herself but she hated everyone else, except her loving boyfriend.

He was always there for her.

She said that if she could only see the world-
– she would marry her boyfriend.

One day someone donated a pair of eyes to her.

And then she could see everything—including her boyfriend.

Her boyfriend asked her, ‘Now that you can see the world, will you marry me?’

The girl was shocked when she saw that her boyfriend was blind too, and refused to marry him.

Her boyfriend walked away in tears-

– and later wrote a letter to her that simply said:
‘Just take care of my eyes dear.’

Too often we change when our status changes.

Only a few remember what life was like before and even fewer remember who to thank for always being there when times were painfully unbearable.

Jesus,your Bridegroom-

– came not only as the Light of your life,

– but also gave his own life for you!

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45.

Are you grateful to him?

If so, belong to him!
