Who really is Christ suited for?

who is better suited for a Fortress than someone who has no strength?

who needs or loves a Physician than the really sick?

who desires a Shepherd more than those of us who are constantly getting lost?

who wants a perfect High Priest who ever lives to intercede more than the one who daily sees their need for forgiveness?

is the cross, is the gospel really for the likes of you?

who is looking more intently at the Morning Star than the one who has wandered in the darkness?

who better than those who feel the deadness and coldness of their soul can more appreciate the One who is the Ressurrection and the Life?

who stares at the Bridegroom more than the one who knows a bitter loneliness?

who is more suited to be loved by the Hope of Glory than those who are in utter despair?

is Christ for the likes of John Letoto?

who needs a Rock, a Cornerstone, more than the man who is shaken to the core?

who loves a Prince of Peace more than the restless and the weary?

yes, John Letoto - the Cross is for the likes of you - in fact, nothing in the universe is more fitting, more suited, more perfect for your salvation, your life and your soul, than the Lamb of God.

you were created and sustained and pursued and regenerated and purchased and brought near and loved and perfected and justified and set apart - to know this truth - that Jesus Christ came as a man, suffered, died and rose again not just for the likes of you - but for you... John Letoto.

Some of you may remember reading that some time ago...over a year ago, actually. Dave wrote those lines and sent them to me after I'd confessed my sin to him. He said they were "just something I wrote really quickly." Hah.

Right now, I want to crawl up into God's lap and never feel alone again. I want to be held by Him and never ever even think of sinning again. I want to know, without heeding one whisper of doubt or feeling one shred of shame, that He loves me as He says He does.

I am the one that Dave spoke of: without strength; sick; lost; needing forgiveness; in the dark; feeling dead and cold; bitterly lonely; despairing; shaken; restless and weary. Yes, I am that man, and that is what makes me perfectly suited for Jesus' arms.
