My musings, my rambles and I welcome you.
"He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God shall give unto Him the throne of His Father David."
Isaiah 7:14; 9:6-7
I love this verse. It reminds me of Jesus’ Majesty. I have spent most of my adult life in Evangelical Christian churches until recently and I love them. I love the warmth and acceptance I found. I love the healing with God I found. However as I matured as a person and a Christian, I wondered at their view of Christ. He seemed to be a best buddy, Santa, martyr and dictator all in one. Jim and Tammy Faye Baker from the ‘90’s had Jesus on speed dial as their personal banker and shaman. Majesty. Kingship. Throne of David. It is good to be reminded that Jesus was before us and will be after us.
It is also good to remember as Bud puts it Jesus had a bellybutton. He wanted to be here with us. He wanted to understand us so He could love us better. This thought blows me away. Why then do I push Him away? Why is it so easy to be busy with His stuff but not Him? Like Bud, I miss Jesus. I miss the close relationship I had a few years ago. I’ve asked for clarity but will I like what I see? Is that why I am dragging my feet on the way to Bethlehem?
