Song Story:  THE  MUSIC:   I
         Four months after I wrote the body part of this song (music & lyrics), I still had not typed it for recording, although I often thought of its haunting lines.  On 12 December 2010, God awoke me with this introduction. Not until I finished developing its chords and typing it,  did I realize that the melody was the same as my-from-God's PRAY AND RUN, Part 2.... where God asks the following:
       What kind of prayer is this?  You do all the talking?  Would you treat friends like this?.. Do you think God is your servant? 
        Romans 5:7 and 8 makes an astounding statement from God that should make us question when we take God 'for granted':
    “For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die.   But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”      --New King James Version

Dedicated to our God With Us, 17 August and 12 December  2010

JESUS in John 15: 13-15a (NKJV):  
“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants.”

“READING 1:     (during  Part 1's  early  melody)  God also showed miracles when He announced the coming of John the Baptist, future messenger of the coming Messiah.  When the people saw God's miracle sign, they asked about John, according to Luke 1 verse 66
"What kind of child will this be?"   
A better question would have been, 
What kind of God cares so much 
about us people that He  would come 
to our World full of sin and pain
as a helpless child?   ... 

What kind of God is this?
What kind of God would leave His great heaven
    to come to Earth to suffer FOR us?
What God is this who would come to rest on 

Mary's lap as a helpless baby?
     what God is this Who would come to die so
     I could live with HIm one day in Heaven?  So
Jesus could live IN me EACH day on Earth?

What kind of God is this?
Almighty God Who left His great heaven to
    show us the DEPTH of His love?           
What God is this Who would LOVE ev'ry person so
much He'd send His One Son to our World?  What'
God is this Who would suffer and die in much
pain on a cross so we can be forgiven just
            praying our belief in His Romans 10 Verse 9?

There's JUST ONE God like this!
Creator God Who calls us His friend and
    laid down His life to save us!        

What God is this Who would LOVE ev'ry person  so
much He wants each of us to be saved?
What God is this Who would call,
"DO NOT PERISH!  REPENT OF YOUR SIN" --  Second Peter 3: 9 --
    "SO I CAN FORGIVE you and bring you to Heaven with Me!"

READING 2:    (during  Part 2's  “What Child is This?”  melody)

        God tells us the condensed version of His Christmas story... 

and His Easter story,  in Romans 5,  verses 5 through 10:
       Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.  For when we were still without strength, in due  time Christ died for the ungodly.  For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man    

someone would even dare to die.   [verses 5-7]
      But God demonstrates His own love toward us, 

in that while we were still sinners
Christ died for us.  
Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, 
we shall be saved 
from wrath    [ hell we deserve for sins -- Jesus's words]
through Him.  For if -- when we were enemies  we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son --  much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.

Hell is a real place.  Second Peter 2 - False teachers will tell you there is no hell.  Or - the opposite - will tell you that sinning after you accept Jesus's sacrifice gift to you of salvation and in your heart know He IS YOUR Lord, will still "send you to hell".

LOGIC:   If you say hell is NOT real,  then you are saying Jesus was dumb for dying for you.
