Jesus or Gollum?


Holy Spirit, You are spirit so I cannot see You in a physical form. If I want to picture You, I personally picture Your creation, specially the universe and the gift of many forms You have placed there for our discovery. Some are so full of power I can almost feel it just looking at pictures from Hubble Telescope. You are also a dichotomy~ peace and power, clarity and mystery, guide and protector. You love me Holy Spirit. You are God Almighty, yet You have a deep and abiding love personally for me; me who am nothing without You. I do not understand why You love me, just that You do!



Life would be so unappetizing without You. The world is an ugly place when You are removed from it. Sin and lust and greed, selfishness, hate, lying, cheating, anger with vengeance. Gollum from Lord of the Rings consumed by these things is a good picture of the vileness of a world without You my God.





Whereas, Jesus is a picture of You and Your mighty love for all of us. What a contrast! Jesus took on our punishment for the sins we have committed, so that in accepting this gift we can learn to live sin and guilt free in a world with Your loving atmosphere permeating every step of the way finishing with the victory of an eternity in heaven!


Ephesians 1:9-10 MSG
Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah,
his blood poured out on the altar of the Cross,
we’re a free people—
free of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds.
And not just barely free, either. Abundantly free!

He thought of everything,
provided for everything we could possibly need,
letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making.
He set it all out before us in Christ,
a long-range plan in which everything would be brought together
and summed up in him,
everything in deepest heaven, everything on planet earth.


I read a true story about You, Holy Spirit, and how You will work Your plans for us; we can hear Your voice and in responding can be a conduit to let Your love flow to others:  

George had his day all planned out, but he kept hearing a voice telling him to call Harry.  It kept coming so finally he called Harry. The phone rang and rang and rang, then stopped. There was no voice mail. So he dialed the number again, and it started ringing and Harry answered. George said, “I was wondering if you’d like to get together sometime for a cup of coffee?” Harry said, “How bout in 20 minutes?” So they met and spent  about 2 hours together. When they first got together, Harry seemed really down. So George just began building him up, and it seemed like Holy Spirit was feeding him words to say. By the time Harry left he seemed much happier!

Well two years later George came across Harry in church, and the man said,
“I never really told you what was happening when you tried to get a hold of me. When you called my house, I had a rope around my neck and I was going to hang myself. My phone rang and rang and rang. Then it stopped. Then it started ringing again.” He thought, “Oh forget it.” He took the rope off his neck. He said, “I didn’t want to leave this earth all ‘nerved up’ because the phone was ringing. So he answered that call. And just that one meeting set him on a course. When he got back home, he got rid of the rope. Something had changed in him by the Spirit. And it set him back on his course.

Thank You Holy Spirit that You help us and aid us in helping others. Have you heard the voice of the Holy Spirit guiding you to speak to another? His love will build in us a desire to be His voice to a friend or sometimes to a complete stranger. We just practice being sensitive to Holy Spirit nudges or His voice.

God loves all His kids and will send help when we need it. But remember sometimes YOU are the help God wants to send.

Looking at Hubble photos elicits the utter stillness of outer space. The images speak of the power and the majesty of the Creator God who demonstrates Himself for His own joy. Our Eye In The Sky let's us see a dimension of Him that shows His incomprehensible enormity.
