God's love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him. (1 John 4:9 NRSV)
I read a true story about a young man named Charlie who was in love with a charming young lady named Ava. She was in love with Charlie, but so far he had been unable to persuade her to marry him. Then one day he invited her to lunch. They drove to the Los Angeles Coliseum, the largest sports arena on the West Coast.

In the center of the vast playing field were placed a small table and two chairs. A captain showed them to the table, seated them, and a waiter waited behind each chair. Apart from this small oasis, the Coliseum was empty. Something like 100,000 empty seats stared down at Charlie and Ava.

The table was elegantly set. Dinner was great, and as they were waiting for dessert, Charlie directed Ava's attention to the huge electronic scoreboard at the far end of the field.

In a prearranged signal he raised his glass, and on the board flashed the words, "Darling Ava, will you marry me?" She said yes!

Why can't God do something like that for us? God has in Jesus Christ. Will we say yes today?


Loving God, you said yes to me, and today I say yes to you. In Jesus name, Amen.
