We don’t have a priest who is out of touch with our reality. He’s been through weakness and testing, experienced it all-all but the sin. Hebrews 4:15 MSG
Our Savior isn’t one who has no way of connecting with us. He experienced human emotions, even though He was fully God.
It’s not something that we can easily understand, how 100% man and 100% God equals 100% Jesus, but that’s how the math works.
I read a book once and the way they described this made a lot of sense to me. They said it’d be like a bird choosing not to fly. Doesn’t mean it isn’t a bird, just means its making a choice to not use that ability that it has.
Christ didn’t use his God powers to perform the miracles. He let God work through him on those.
And that is why he is our perfect example.
He could do everything he did on his own, but he chose to bring God glory.
We can do stuff on our own (very, very little) but isn’t it better to do things and bring glory to our Creator instead?
And anything you think you can’t do, is untrue. We have a God who wants to help us- he wants us to get through our struggles without failing and slipping. He wants us to thrive in Him. He wants us to live abundantly, over sin, and because our Jesus has already been tested and tempted, and come out clean without sinning, we can too.
He gives us that ability. We just choose to not follow.
Praise God that we do have a savior that isn’t just relatable, but that loves us so much.
I hope your 3 day weekend was fantastic! I cleaned my butt off on Friday so that I could have these past 3 days to somewhat relax. Not much relaxing going on around a toddler…
But my house is clean, so now it’s just upkeep.
We had church Sunday, like always, a busy day. Then Monday we worked outside a little (well… Wes did mostly.) He bush-hogged around the house, and it looks better. Widened our yard up some haha!
Then later we made a mad dash to Lowes to get the stuff we needed for our shower. And we got it all – and Wes says he wants to be showering in OUR shower by the weekend.
This will be ONE happy pregnant lady if that happens. We’ve been without our shower for.. quite some time. I’ll have to look back and see if I blogged about it. I think it’s been like a year or more.
It’s gonna be SO NICE.. Ahh.. I can’t wait. Well. I can. I have to. I can’t lay the tile.
Maybe I can…. Just kidding 😉
Lucy was sweet on the way to hattiesburg. Poor girl was sleepy.
She’s had fun with Daddy the past few days.
She loves her Daddy.
And yesterday she turned 23 months old. TWENTY THREE. 23. 23. 23.
Today we will take her 23 month portraits. Gotta find a super cute outfit. Yesterday we also played in the sprinkler. I’ll have some of those pictures for you tomorrow. SO funny!
You’ll see 🙂
Ok – Have a wonderful day!!
