I have used this picture before, but I think roses should be repeated as much as possible. Today really is a spring day! Hallelujah! We have been waiting for this all winter, and today we have the reality of what we dreamed of for a few months. God is like this sometimes, we pray and we trust, and then we trust and we pray. We wait patiently and then He brings the reality into our lives, not a second too late or too early, right on time!
What a mighty God we serve! I would like to welcome our new ladies that I met at the Kingdom Hearts Conference on Saturday! It was wonderful talking to ever one of you. Please feel welcome as we adventure into God's word together.With Easter less than a week away, let's look at Philippians 2:5-8.
"Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross."
Can you imagine with me what it must have been like for Jesus to take on human flesh? You are God of all creation, and then you willingly become one of the created! We know that only love could have compelled Him to do such a thing. To be limitless, and then to "put on" limits? To live within a sinful body, and to be God in the flesh. Only love, compassion and great mercy could have kept Him here for 33 years. Patience, kindness goodness was embodied into His human flesh. It seems that it is miraculous that His flesh didn't burst open under the weight of His Holiness. All because of love, for you and I, this is what kept Him here, until His Father in Heaven had Him say,"It is Finished!
What a glorious day, what an everlasting truth, for all mankind! Take hold of it today, because He did it for you! Blessings and love, Ann
