Wow!

I don’t put YouTube videos on my blog very often. If memory serves me well, I think I’ve only done it twice. And I’m probably very late to this one since it has been viewed over three and half milliont times But this one touched me very deeply. Yes, you have to sit through a cheesy ad and it is from a pop TV show, but watch the story unfold. Incredible!

I know many don’t like the words to the song, but the sum total of this story and song struck a deep chord in my heart as I listened to it this weekend. No, I don’t agree with all the words of the song, but I do agree with the theme of it. God does want a world without war and will one day make it so. And there is perhaps no one better to proclaim that truth than someone who has been so impacted by it. I don’t know if I can tell you to enjoy this one, because if you’re like me you might need a box of Kleenex nearby. But its end your heart will feel triumphant as the purpose of God unfolds in our world. This is as close to God’s heart as anything I know. Only the selfish, greedy heart of broken humanity keep this from being a reality. Lord Jesus, come judge the world and set right what sin has so twisted!

    Like the one girl on the judging panel said, “It just makes everything you worry about seem so rediculous.” That says it all to me. Father truly is a loving God in this man’s life.

    Wow indeed, and amen Wayne! What is also very interesting is Emmanuel’s adoptive mother’s story (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moira_Kelly_%28humanitarian%29). I couldn’t help but looking her up, based on her adopted son’s name. Another case of our Father’s love overflowing the confines of religious paradigms!
