What Was He Thinking?
by Tom Norvell
A current television commercial shows a guy going off a tall waterfall in a kayak. He screams as he bounces against the rocks along the wall of the canyon and finally splashes in the waters below. A couple standing by their go-anywhere-climb-any-mountain-cross-any-river vehicle have been watching the strange sight. He turns to his female companion, shakes his head and says, What was he thinking?
Sometimes when I read the story of the cross I wonder, What was He thinking? When I allow myself to consider the events that led up to the cross the life that was lived, the good that was done, the suffering He endured, the words that were spoken I wonder, What was He thinking? When I ponder the plan that God had from the beginning of time to be with His people and realize the way His people have rejected Him, ignored Him, and disappointed Him, I wonder, What was He thinking?
Like the couple on the mountain trail watching a guy go over the falls in a kayak, I dont know what he was thinking. But, when I turn my eyes upon Jesus and look full in His wonderful face and realize what He has done for me, I dont have to wonder. He was thinking of me. You dont have to wonder what He was thinking. He was thinking of you.
God chose him for this purpose long before the world began, but now in these final days, he was sent to the earth for all to see. And he did this for you. (1 Peter 1:20 NLT)
