Sunday Seasoned Sayings: Christ’s Being-Here-For-Us

 

With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved.
Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to
live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud.
A new power is in operation.
The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air,
freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.
~Romans 8:1-2 (Message)

    Holy billowing clouds, Batman! That first photo? Whoosh…

    A brutal tyrant is sin’s companion, death. You well know. But his strong wind… Thank God for that strong wind.

    Beautiful. He does lift the clouds of our lives and gives glimpses of his glory as the Son shines through.

    I love re-reading familiar passages in The Message. This just stopped me in my tracks: “…freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.” Sometimes it seems as though life is lived under brutal tyranny. Thanks be to God, we’ve been set free.

    One of my favorite chapters in the Bible. Don’t read Message, but do love seeing the bits and pieces that some of you post. And I truly love birds… so it’s always nice to see your photos of them.

    Bless your day!!
