10.13.2021 – The Way to His Heart

Our God is both nearer, and higher than we can comprehend…

But He’s not watching us from someplace, distantly.

No, He does not lack

empathy

For Jesus came into our world,

He came close

and felt the

pain

…from our sins…

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.”—John 1:14

And He shed His perfect blood,

for all the world…

that we might be released

of our sin,

our separation,

our shame,

…our captivity.

And He knows

He

has

felt.

He is REAL,

flesh, bone, and blood…

He felt every wound.

“When Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who had come with her also weeping, he was deeply moved in his spirit and greatly troubled. And he said, “Where have you laid him?” They said to him, “Lord, come and see.” Jesus wept.”—John 11:33-35

“When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.”—Matthew 9:36

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book”—Psalm 56:8

He understands, with great empathy…

what it means to be human,

like you and me.

He is close to the brokenhearted,

for HE himself was broken.

“You know that he appeared to take away sins, and in him there is no sin.”—1 John 3:5

“For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”—2 Corinthians 5:21

Thank You, Jesus, for what You’ve done for me. ❤️‍🔥

You made a way for us,

You came, You showed up,

YOU CAME CLOSE,

and You cleansed, and covered our sins…

You have released us

from the sting of death and captivity…

Father, thank You for the way

that You have made

for us

…to come to You.

Jesus is the precious door way,

…that we might draw close to Your heart. 💝

“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”—Romans 5:6-8

“…but you have received The Spirit of the adoption of children by whom we cry, “Father, our Father.”—Romans 8:15
