Everybody wants to hear #WordsOfComfort, but who expects to hear those words from a dying man on an instrument of torture?  And yet, that is just what #Jesus delivered from the #cross.  Was Jesus only concerned about the eternal?  Where was Mary while her son was on the cross?  Who was with her?  What was he asked to do?  What kind of relationship did the Lord have with His earthly family?  What is the challenge to us?

THE LIVING GOD #RENEWS

#Ages #one to #seventy-nine were at our recent #family gathering for #birthday #celebrations in #Atlanta while we renewed our love for one another.  After all the traveling,..eating, restaurants, shopping, park concert with food trucks, we still managed to visit and share presents with tall tales; however, all ages were exhausted including the dogs!  Yes, we have dogs and service dogs in our family.   My son and youngest daughter are in wheelchairs, one granddaughter has a prosthesis, my first born daughter suffered a head injury from a car accident, and her daughter suffers with seizures.  Would you believe I was reading Isaiah 40 during my morning devotion one of the days of our celebration…how appropriate!  “Have you not known:  Had you not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, does not faint, neither is weary:  there is no searching of His understanding.  He gives power to the faint and to them that have no might He increases their strength.  Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:  but they that wait upon the LORD SHALL RENEW THEIR STRENGTH,  they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. . . .(41:10)Fear not; for I AM with you;  be not dismayed; for I AM your GOD:  I will strengthen you; yes, I will help you; yes, I will uphold you with the right hand of my righteousness….For I the LORD your GOD will hold your right hand, saying , Fear not; I will help you”  When you are weary and feel you cannot carry on…turn to the only LIVING GOD who can hold your hand.

What #punishment was too terrible for a citizen of #Rome but applied anyway to the #SonofGod?  The crucifix was the reserved for the worst criminals at the time.  What were the reactions of the two men on either side of Jesus on the cross?  How similar are the reactions to Jesus Christ today?  Which of the two men identifies your response to the Lord’s invitation?  If being good or doing good deeds saved us in the afterlife (they don’t) how could the one thief who repented gain salvation?

THE LIVING GOD #BOOK

Have you read a good book lately?  Do you prefer #mystery, #spy, #superhero, #romance, or the latest How To book?    Ever considered #reading the all time #best #seller?   Yes, I recommend the Holy Bible!  “Everything old is new again”   The LORD told Moses, “Now go, write it before them in a tablet and note it in a BOOK, that it may be for the time to come forever and ever  Many philosophies have come and gone through the ages, but GOD’s Word is consistently true!  Is.33:6 “The LORD’S wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of the times and strength of salvation”  Is.34:16 “Seek out the BOOK OF THE LORD, and READ”  Do you ever read, but not focus?  Is.39:5 “Hear the word of the LORD of hosts”   My prayer for all of us is from Elisha as he said, “LORD, I pray open his eyes that he may see.” 11Kings6:17   In this tumultuous time may we read the BOOK OF THE LORD seeking to find Him by hearing His Word that we can choose to following the Living Truth, the great I AM.

I have enjoyed watching the #Olympics lately and ignoring the #politics.  But iIn these #TurbulentTimes have you ever met someone who didn’t know enough to be concerned?  The people surrounding the cross were crying for the wrong reason.  How surprising and different were the last words of this man on the cross?  When do you take time to lift up a prayer?  How long would it take you or me to forgive someone who nailed us to a cross?  How long did it take Jesus?  Was He just praying for those in His immediate vicinity?
