Only God could conceive entering this world in a form of a humble man, not a king, not a warrior, but as a lowly slave and servant.

He was sent to heal the wounded. God have mercy! Rejoice!!

May the Peace and Joy of Christ heal your wounds. Merry Christmas!

that thought hit me really hard yesterday.

just watched JC Superstar and, although it does take dramatic license on scripture, i have always loved that movie musical.
i started crying during the scene where JC is alone at night praying for some way out of dying before submitting to god's will in the morning. he knew what he must do the next day.
he had a very busy schedule.
arrest. humiliation. torture. execution.
very powerful performance by ted neely as JC.

i was flooded with love for god through christ.
i think i finally got it.
i felt the impact of the crime.
the horror of what had been done to him, for man, by man.
the destruction of an innocent life.
the ugly hatred of love and beauty.
the sacrifice of truth on the altar of lies.
in the end, his death became necessary and convenient,
so people could get on with their petty pursuit of power and pleasure.
what a world.
as we survivors know, this is happening and continues to happen.
all around us, every day.
it is the human condition.
and yet this one death of one man has managed to expose that ugliness and keep his word alive for these many centuries.

the creator god as victim/survivor and ultimately victor.
suffering at the hands of his own creation.
enduring defeat and death with dignity, then defeating death.
resurrection. salvation.
believe it or not! as ripley would say.

you are right, Jim1961...
it is a mind-boggling idea.
worth considering.

thanks for your thoughts.

Merry Christmas to all

Father thank you for the gift of today we acknowledge that you and you alone have made. Today we magnify the Lord Christ our saviour who you sent to be an atonement for our sins allowing us to come back into fellowship with The one true God. For this we say thank you with a thousand tongues. May you bless those who know not of the glorious riches found only in your son Christ Jesus , a glimpse of the realities of his saving grace. Afford them the opportunity to come into fellowship with your son. Open stony hearts and dull ears to receive the glorious gospel the good news that will indeed set any man or woman who is bound by the sin of this world free. We praise you we honor you and we adore you as we exalt you with the highest praise Hallelujah to the lord our God . In Jesus magnificent name AMEN
