Daily Nugget

Today's cherished Nugget from guest blogger Pastor Bill

 On September 10, 1986, in a Washington, D.C., hospital, a six-hour surgical procedure was performed to remove one of Senator Jake Garn’s (a United States Senator from Utah) kidneys and to implant it into his daughter. The radio news broadcast a story on Garns, and in it was a comment from the doctor who put the donated kidney into Susan’s body.

At a press briefing at Georgetown University Hospital, the doctor said, “The senator is awake, has a bit of a grin on his face. He seems very self-satisfied, and happy and peaceful.”
The senator had to be in pain at that moment. The incision through which his kidney was removed goes from his back to his front ribs. There were tubes in him, needles yet to come, and several weeks of recuperation lying ahead,  but he was smiling! That grin on Jake Garn’s face could have meant only one thing: no regrets.

Love makes it possible for a person to do the most difficult and dreaded of things without looking back. We need to think for a moment about what Jesus did to save us. He left the worship of angels to be born in a stable. He accepted the limitations of human form, suffered indignities of the greatest magnitude, and shed His lifeblood to purchase our redemption. The most astounding thing about all He did is that not one word in the Bible indicates that the Son of God regretted doing such sacrifice. In fact, on the day of His ascension back to the Father, He might have had a bit of a grin on His face.  

The familiar verse, John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” This message tells us that His only regret would come if we refused His gift of life. 

God, thank You for loving us beyond measure. Amen.
