I don’t know if you are a Dr. Who fan or not, I must confess that I watch it but won’t call myself a ‘Whovian’, in fact to be perfectly honest I’ve found this last series a little dull… but I’ve still been watching it anyway.

And this week’s episode sparked my interest…

There are many things in it which deserve our attention, and when the second part is played out I will try and have a think more deeply about some of the questions it raises.

But for now, let us rest upon one line that the Doctor spoke to Clara…

‘Do you think I care for you so little that betraying me would make a difference’?

The Doctor so cares for Clara, that even after being betrayed by her, he is still prepared to help… if he can.

And we see that and it only increases our admiration for the Doctor more, because what love and concern he must have that he thinks so little of self and so much of others that he is prepared to not treat Clara as she deserves…

Don’t we wish that there was someone who would do the same for us?

The Good news today, is that there is…

Listen to the Apostle Paul’s words in Romans 5v6-8:

You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

The story revolves around the idea that the dead go on living just in a different guise, their minds are put in one place and their bodies another…

Christ died for you, not when you were at your best, not when you finally got to a point whereby you deserved it.

But he died for you in your worst moment, in the moment when we were at our furthest from God, and he said to us… I don’t care what you have done… I love you so much, I will do anything to bring you into my family.

We watch Doctor Who and wish he were real… but really we have someone far far better

Enjoy your day.
