This is more than my little soul can take in but what I can of it, it is warmth and comfort, happy giggles and dancing. The LORD JESUS here on mission as the GOD-Man experienced the joy of the HOLY SPIRIT – is it any wonder He wants to share Him with us?! See John 14:16-17.
JESUS, was here! walking as a man and He prayed; He thanked the Father, carried on conversations with Him and He made the way for us to do the same. Amazing!
And. Look at this! It is those who are childlike – trusting, not puffed up with themselves, not proud and wise in their own eyes – it is those to whom GOD reveals Himself. JESUS liked that! He thanked ABBA for it. It is good for me to do the same.
One more look. O Father, Lord of heaven and earth.
LORD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH!
Perhaps we have lost the magnitude of that.
I listened to a preacher today who said that. He said we have lost the magnitude of the message Peter delivered to Cornelius. The magnificent message that JESUS was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died as our substitute, rose from the dead and is coming again. There is no greater message. No greater revelation. No greater anything! Check out Acts 10.You may also check out Preacher Tim Hill HERE.
Okay Y’all I am flat-out (with no prompting) promoting my blog friend, Leah Adams’ latest Bible Study, Tasting Grace., co-authored with Jan Morton. I was actually later getting my copy of the study than I intended to be – it was worth the wait!
Leah and I have not actually met face to face but the kinship is real. This is her third published Bible Study. Her first was Creating a Godly Legacy. I was privileged to write an official endorsement for the study – a so needed study for me! Leah’s second study, HeBrews: A Better Blend. I loved it! Closing the last page was like saying goodbye to a good friend; but like good friends, memories of good times remain.
And now this one: Tasting Grace. I am only on Day 2 but I am hooked! And I haven’t even tried the recipes yet! One of my favorite parts is the What’s Cooking section; the place with Leah’s prompting you get to put to paper what the Father has spoken to you in the session – like sums it all up for you. What we have here is an interactive study. Leah starts the conversation, brings you to places in Scripture, gives questions to cause you think about what you are reading and then leads you right to the Holy Spirit’s classroom. I love it! Thanks Leah!
So if you happen to be needing a good study, one that only takes about 15 minutes a day, and one that gives you RECIPES too, you need Tasting Grace!

Sweep our hearts and minds clean O LORD of all that does not please You.
