Contemporary English Version (CEV)
It struck me tonight -- Christ had the power to do or have anything he wanted. What would you do if you had no limit to your resources? What would you do if you could do anything, without limit? How would you spend your time, your energy, your life? Would you invest in yourself?
Or would you choose to offer up your life to the poor, the hungry, the outcast? Would you serve those who have chosen sin? Would you give everything up so that others may join you in the glory you deserve, even though destruction may be the most fitting end for them?
Christ chose to love and to serve, to give himself up for sinners. He could have had anything. What he wanted was eternal life with you.
How will you respond to such a gift, such an outpouring of love?
