Cast Up A Highway



Be A Major Player

Posted on December 14, 2016 at 6:30 AM

John 6:53 (AMP)

53 And Jesus said to them, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [unless you believe in Me as Savior and believe in the saving power of My blood which will be shed for you], you do not have life in yourselves.

Indeed even today there are those who find Jesus a stumbling block instead of a Rock of salvation. Jesus speaks truth only, and some choose to believe what their flesh desires instead of truth.

John 15:5-7 (NIV)

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.

Jesus came to earth as a baby of humble birth. He grew up in the home of His mother Mary and foster father Joseph, a carpenter. The Word says He grew in wisdom and knowledge. When Jesus was ready to begin His mission in life~ to make His Father known to the peoples of earth, and to shed His blood for the salvation of all mankind, He set out and first chose 12 men to accompany Him. They became major players in Gods plan!

Now the peoples of His day knew a Messiah was coming, but they thought it would be a warrior that would be a conqueror for them. So the humble Jesus arrived, and many Jewish leaders of the time overlooked Him despite His teachings and miracles. Jesus presented a challenge to their authority and their way of life. He was a stumbling block to them, and so many missed out on the gift of eternal life Jesus brought.

Today it is the same. Jesus speaks truth and does not present anything with ‘political correctness’. Many were offended in those days by Jesus’ words in John 6:53 above. The bluntness of His speech lost many of the disciples. Today it happens as well. There is a right and a wrong. There is truth! Many want to make their own rules rejecting God's commands.

Soon we will be celebrating Jesus' birth. The anti-Christian culture our government has been fostering the last 8 years has resulted in more emphasis on being politically correct than on honoring God. We each need to do our part to play a major role in proclaiming the true meaning of Christmas; Jesus is the reason for the season! WE can spread the good news of the Savior whose birth we celebrate.

Yes, continue to rejoice in our Savior and teach our kids and share with friends the true meaning of Christmas! That God Himself became man to pay our sin debt that we may all spend eternity with HIM. All the wonderful lights of Christmas honor Jesus Who is the Light of the World! Let us see and rejoice in Him!

                                        AWESOME GOD


Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.

Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!

Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:

Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.

Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
