Faith sees a Savior
“Be strong in the Lord and in His great power”
Max Lucado writes in Grace for the Moment: I stand a few feet from a mirror and see the face of a man who failed…who failed his Maker. Again. I promised I wouldn’t, but I did. I was quiet when I should have been bold. I took a seat when I should have taken a stand. If this were the first time, it would be different. But it isn’t. How many times can one fall and expect to be caught. Your eyes look in the mirror and see a sinner, a failure, a promise-breaker. But, by faith, you look in the mirror and see a robed prodigal bearing the ring of grace on your finger and the kiss of your Father on your face…..Your eyes see your faults. Your faith sees your Savior. Your eyes see your guilt. Your faith sees His blood.
As we are concluding this Lenten season and reflection on our relationship with God and hopefully deeper discipleship, we approach the most difficult and terrifying experience of a divine human life tortured and crucified. Yet by this act, we can see clearly our Savior in our mirror.
Please keep Don Bullock and family in prayers at the death of his brother, Paul, and Tina Taylor and family at the death of her father, Ronald Brooks. We grieve with them but know they have gone to the place that their Father has prepared for them.
Blessings to you all.
