God is odd

Being humble is exalted.

Bathing in His blood is good.

He is just, but saved us.

He is God, and became a man.

The King of Kings, but born in a stable.

Owner of everything, but nowhere to lay His head.

Trillions of sins, one act of obedience.

Hater of sins, lover of sinners.

We must die to live forever.

Eternal life, Righteousness, Victory. All things He imputed to us.

Praise God His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts!

Merry Christmas. May you humble yourself, bathe in blood and die.

The coolness of my friend, Lindsay Cooper...

I have a friend. Her name is Coop. We never see each other, but will remain close forever. She challenges me, I miss her.
I wonder if Coop has ever thought about this before...

Upon Christmas season coming and arriving, I have begun my annual Christmas music listening ritual. This year is a bit different, and I have decided to think about the words of Christmas Carols. They are rich with meaning. I have know these things my whole life and sometimes missed it...
God rest ye merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay, remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas day, to save us all from Satan's power, when we were gone astray.
I like most of us during the holiday season begin to focus on what is joyful and comfortable. Being with family and friends, sitting by the fire, watching the opening of presents, the decorations all over the streets and homes, joyful, comfortable.
Do we remember that Christ our Savior came and saved us "far as the curse is found(last verse of Joy to the World)." We are cursed with sin and death, headed to eternal separation from Him, and He saved us and those "far as the curse is found." He saved me, loved me, and made me righteous. Oh the depths of the riches of Christ! What message brings more comfort and joy?
Merry Christmas Linds. Lets do coffee.
