As Needed

Art Prize Exhibit

So much of life isn’t simply a matter of right or wrong.

Medications, sedatives, painkillers, doctors, hospitals, courtrooms, prisons, weapons, and armies, look different— as needed by us or someone we love.

We don’t have to walk down this road too far before coming to the hill on which Jesus was crucified. What does his torture and death tell us about the rightness of a Father who let our people do that to his Son?

Our Father apparently wanted us to know that none of us is simply “not quite right.” All of us, regardless of our real or imagined problems— need to know, and remember— that even wanting to kill our God (intentionally or unwittingly) could never keep him from loving us.

He remembered us in our weakness. His faithful love endures forever. Psalm 136:23

    Great is Thy faithfulness
    O God, my Father
    There is no shadow of turning with Thee
    Thou changes not
    Thy compassions they fail not
    As Thou hast been,
    Thou forever wilt be.

    (Chorus)
    Great is Thy faithfulness
    Great is Thy faithfulness
    Morning by morning,
    New mercies I see
    All I have needed
    Thy hand hath provided
    Great is Thy faithfulness
    Lord unto me

    Summer and winter, springtime and harvest
    Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
    Join with all nature in manifold witness
    To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

    (Chorus)
    Great is Thy faithfulness
    Great is Thy faithfulness
    Morning by morning,
    New mercies I see
    All I have needed
    Thy hand hath provided
    Great is Thy faithfulness
    Lord unto me

    The Lord draws near to those who know they are “Not Quite Right” and will find a closeness and eternal home with Him(Psalm 34:18) compared to those who boast in their rightness by looking down on others they will have no eternal home because they do not realize their need. (Luke 18:9-14)
