Jesus had a mission. His mission is the mission of all His followers - to seek and save the lost.
About four years ago my first wife died to cancer. I have never felt so much pain and loss. Fortunately, I know with whom she put her faith and trust. So, in that respect I am happy for her. Yet, I still feel the pain. (See my article on God, Do You Love Me?).
Yet, imagine how Jesus feels when those whom He loves reject Him. Does He feel loss? Absolutely. Does He feel pain? Undoubtedly. Does He allow people to choose? Without a doubt.
I write because I know the hope there is in an obedient faith in Christ. I write because I feel pain of loss. I write because I know Jesus desire. I write because I want all to know God through His Son - Jesus.
