Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

He should be your passion!

I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever." Psalm 145:1

I think that one of my favorite Psalms is 145 take time to read it all the way through.

Have you ever thought about Jesus as a human?

Have you ever wondered what Jesus might have felt walking among His creation?

Wonder what He thought of the sound and feel of the dirt between His toes?

This is the same One who created the earth centuries before only now in human form.

Can you imagine how He felt as the wind that He calls by name whips through His hair?

Can you imagine how He felt as He was waist deep in the Sea of Galilee and the very waves that He set in motion slapped against His chest.

We only can imagine what must have went through His mind.

He alone could understand what His life would count for.

His very steps, His every moment upon this earth was ordained before the foundation of the world.

Every smile and every tear, every conversation, everything that He was and is today and will always be was set in motion before the foundation of the earth.

"Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given Me, be with Me where I am; that they may behold My glory, which thou hast given Me: for thou lovedst Me before the foundation of the world." John 17:24

How is it that we have reduced Jesus to just an image?

He came as God in the flesh!

He is not a folklore!

Life with Jesus is not just a formality!

He came in the form of a person just like you and me!

There He is, the power, the goodness, the glory, and the majesty wrapped up in human form.

His hands were the Ones that put the stars in the sky!

He put the sun, and moon into being!

He came and lived an earthly life just like you and I.

Walking and living among the most treasured, most valued thing to Him: His creation!

He laughed with us.

He ate with us.

He cried just like us and over us.

He was on a mission.

The mission of Love.

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved." John 3:16-17

Jesus knew and still knows the value of our soul.

Jesus pressed in tirelessly, marching forward.

He never looked back!

He never indulged in disappointment!

He never wasted an opportunity to tell about heaven.

He never held a complaint, or grudge, or even a regret.

Jesus just kept pressing in!

Do you keep pressing in?

Do you talk about your heavenly Father?

Do you bring joy with you wherever you go?

Jesus brought joy, liberty, healing and truth to each person that He met.

What about you?

Do you share the truth?

Do you share God's good news?

It is worth it all even if one shall be saved.

What would it have felt like to stare Him face to face and look Him in the eyes?

His hands were hard and calloused, thick and strong, from it comes protection, and strength, and tenderness.

His voice was full of passion.

Life flows from Him.

Death comes from the simple lack of not trusting in Him.

Jesus!

The Son of God!

All the power of heaven at His fingertips, and not once did He use any of it for Himself.

He was always giving it away!

All that He did and all that He was, all His joy, and life giving breath of His excellence.

It was all for other people.

It was always to the honor of His Father!

Can we say that we do things just to give God the honor?

How do you describe the One who is indescribable?

In Him our every struggle is resolved.

He is the beginning and the end.

He is the fullness of life!

He is the gateway to eternity!

He is the hope of all ages!

Jesus!

"For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also His offspring." Acts 17:28
