"may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ," Ephesians 3:18
Do you have a rabbit in your kitchen? I don't know I thought maybe I missed the latest trend. My dogs would not go for this. Not even a bird can light on our lawn without a lot of barking. I thought it was a cute picture.
On this day all over the world, people stop to think of Jesus. Some as a passing thought:others as the Savior of the World. You have all levels of understanding in between. What do you think of him today?
I browsed through the new "Evidence That Demands a Verdict ," by Josh and Sean McDowell. It is quite an extensive work, with all sorts of research on the validity of scripture. From archeological findings to historical references and comparisons of the gospels. There can be no doubt that the Bible is a unique book.
Those of us who walk by faith have a knowing in our souls before we read any research by the experts. These wonderful works only add clarity and strength to those who seek after God.
There has been much written about the love of Christ. He is the only one who could ever put all that we see together, to make sense. In this day, we live under the burden of sin, but only for a short while. Soon our Lord will release all of the world from the curse of sin and death.
His work on the cross is our deliverance. Our victory here and now is the power of the resurrection. His resurrection power belongs to us as believers.Our ability to see past this natural realm enables us to stand on our mountains.
His love will abound in a way that we cannot comprehend on the day of His return. He will pull back the veil, to reveal all the perfection that he desired for us from the beginning. We will sing and rejoice beyond our natural ability now. Knowing His love is what gives us the strength we need while here.
God never intended for us to be sick, have relational problems, or to suffer heartache. The world He designed for us was pure, unadulterated, and free. We will return to that Garden of Eden, so to speak, without the Fall in view. Blessings and love always.
