This morning I was reading 2 Corinthians 5 and learning more of our Lord’s plan for us and our misconceptions of His son. It really hit me to consider how we have evaluated Christ in the same way we have considered one another. Isn’t it easy to put God in a box, convenient yet a concern.
If we truly think that the God, creator of the universe will fit in our box, either our small mindedness has lost sight of the universe or we have placed ourselves in the position of being controller of the box and thus in control of God.
In reading 2 Cor 5:15 I saw the error of our assumption. It then came home in verse 7 where the challenge of believing by faith comes home.
Thank you for your creative love
Made me, redeemed me
Bless the name of Jesus
Called me, cleansed me
Find me and purify my heart
Not lost, ever watched
Believing in a sacrificial son
Never seeing yet convinced
One day taken Heaven bound
Final home and body found
While still here let me declare
Tent of ruin losing hair
Jesus, Saviour, maker, mine
Impacts life from the divine
God looks on His son endowed
To walk and talk, bring reconciled
For God made Christ the son
To be the offering, the only one
Wiped out our debt, our sin, my bad
Bringing us back home to Dad

Great chapter! Read 2 Corinthians 5 now and be amazed.
I like this Andrew, but I am perplexed by line 4 in the 3rd verse? Tent of ruin losing hair? Is that referring to your baldness? 🙂
