TONIGHT's Topic: "Pleasure & Grief Cont'd!"
Pleasure and Grief
I love the pleasures of Christmas. I love how much of God’s glory is edible—the cookies, the chocolate, the cookies, the big dinner ... oh, did I mention the cookies?
I want to conclude this series of four Advent devotionals by remembering that the birth of Christ is deeply connected to pleasure in the heart of God. But it’s not the pleasure you and I would typically associate with the joys of Christmas.
It’s the pleasure of grief.
Isaiah writes in Chapter 53, verse 10, “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him” (KJV). The ESV translates, “Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief.”
How could it be that God the Father would ever find pleasure in the crushing of his Son? If you’re a parent, you know that it pains your heart to see your child experience a minor bruise. Can you imagine, as a parent, watching the grief and torment that Christ faced on the cross?
How could it be? Scripture answers Scripture: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).
Jesus was born to die, and a cross-shaped shadow hovered over Him from the day He was born...
It's all about "Peer-to-Peer" Support and "Sharing is Caring!"
Tune in TONIGHT with Steve for a discussion about "Pleasure and Pain Cont'd!"
