Greetings and Grace to All!

Receiving a letter from a listener in Kenya caused my heart to rejoice greatly as he shared that he has delightedly discovered the radical life-changing power of the Word of God.

And I smiled as I could "feel" his elation and enthusiasm.

Then I began to think just how sadly, tragically different my own life would be without His Word informing me concerning the way life works and (more importantly!) who God is.

How grateful, how truly-eternally-passionately-beyond descriptionally grateful I am for His Word.

What a glorious gift He has given to each of us ...

... thank you Precious Abba!!!

Loving His Word,

Jon


Daily Devotional
March 2
 
Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself.
John 10:17-18
 
As an Old Testament believer, if you wanted to be touched by God, you would bring a lamb to the Temple. There, the priests would carefully inspect and scrutinize it for any spot or blemish. It was not the worshipper who was judged. It was the lamb.

Herein lies a fabulous truth. You see, I can be guided by the Father tonight; I can be led by the Father tomorrow. I can expect to receive abundant life. I can look forward to His blessing upon me and upon my family. I can trust He will anoint my head with oil, that He will take care of the predators who are coming out to get me, that He will lead me through the valley of darkness. I can expect a table set before me: I can expect to truly fellowship with God — not because of my spotlessness, but because the Lamb has been inspected and found perfect. Worthy is the Lamb.

I can receive blessing tonight not because I’ve come to church, not because I’ve read fifteen chapters in my Bible, not because I didn’t watch television. I enjoy the blessing of God upon my life solely because of the Lamb.

‘I lay down My life,’ Jesus said. He didn’t say, ‘You better lay down your life if you expect to be blessed.’ While it is true that He would call us in discipleship to take up our cross daily and follow Him, my entry into the presence of the Father is not based upon who I am, what I do, or what I don’t do. It is based upon Who He is, and what He did on the Cross.

The Shepherd became a Lamb that we dumb sheep might know the Shepherd. Worthy indeed is the Lamb.
