Broken but mended by the love of Christ!

A man breaks a leg, and the surgeon sets the bone.  That is kindness.  But suppose the man's mother should set the bone.  Oh, how she would do it with lovingkindness!  That is how God has dealt with us.  Oh, how tenderly! –Spurgeon

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39

The song “I Stand Amazed” says, “I stand amazed in the presence, Of Jesus the Nazarene, And wonder how He could love me, A sinner, condemned, unclean.” How much did God love us; one man said, “He spread His arms and gave His life for us.” We can never exhaust describing how much the Lord loved us! I echo what Spurgeon said, “God deals with us with lovingkindness!” His lovingkindness mended us with a love greater than our own Mother's love!

How do you deal with those that you come in contact with each day? How do you deal with the sinner; with the condemned, with those that are unclean? If not with lovingkindness as Jesus did, you are trying to set what is broken without love!
