Questions for Chapters 5-7
- He didn’t take it in His hands and feet to get a bride who yawns in His face on Sunday mornings. What do you think about that statement?
- The love of the cross is wide, high, low and deep. Which of these four fascinates you most?
It reminds me not to be a complainer. Realize even more of the great sacrifice he made because of the Great LOVE he had for me.
The depth fascinated me the most realizing that no other Love can go any deeper then the JESUS has for me. Glory to God
Sister Veleta, nice! Yeah, it shuts down all complaints!
When I hear this statement, I think, OUCH!!! Where is our passion for HIM? We’re an uninterested bride? It’s so sad. Really, when we come to church on Sundays, when we read this book, are we expecting to love HIM more? What do we really want out of our relationship with HIM? Maybe we’re not interested in HIM. It’s time to be honest about that because HE doesn’t want to be in a relationship with anyone who doesn’t want HIM. Neither would I.
The love of the cross being low is what fascinates me most. HIS love reached so low, all the way down to dirty, unlovable me and saved me from total destruction. Amazed!!!
1. It reminds me to not have a perfunctory attitude when we gather as a Body of believers but to rather celebrate the completed work of Christ… together. As a Christian, the occurrence never gets old. This should never be seen as just another “thing” on my ‘to do’ or ‘don’t do’ list. As Believers, recalling this amazing work at Calvary should always be bathed in appreciation and adoration unto our King.
2. Deep… This is because the depth of my sin was not beyond the reach of His love! He still reaches into the deep places with His loving hand in this journey called life…
A bride that yawns in His face…..
This statement hit me hard. Do we/ I gather together Sundays/Thursdays with an apathetic posture? It doesn’t necessarily speak to my local assembly but much to my relationship with Christ. Because when you come together with other believers it should be explosive! We all have something in common if you are a true believer, the enemy and this world hates you/us! So when we come together it should be fire, excitement, worship, etc because our oneness in worshipping/praising the one that gave His life so that we would have life here abundantly and eternal life!
