A Meditation for Christmas Week: The Christmas Paradox, part II
He who is the Bread of Life began His ministry hungering.
He who is the Water of Life ended His ministry thirsty.
Christ hungered as man, yet fed the multitudes as God.
He was weary, yet He is our rest.
He prayed, yet He hears prayers.
He was sold for 30 pieces of silver, yet He redeems sinners.
He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, yet He is the Good Shepherd.
He died, and by dying destroyed death.
“You are familiar with the generosity of our Master, Jesus Christ. Rich as he was, he gave it all away for us—in one stroke he became poor and we became rich.” ~II Corinthians 8:9, The Message~
Hallelujah, what a Savior!
I’m visiting my sisters in Memphis for the week. May Christmas find you joyful & satisfied & surrounded by those you love.
