  1. Dee, I think it is part our design. We are incapable of understanding, the same as we are incapable of understanding other mysteries of life, death, love, and truth. We cannot understand God because we are not God, and cannot imagine that which is simple through His eyes ~ through His love. Thus the reason for faith, leaving to God what is God’s. We do not need to comprehend the wonder that is Jesus Christ; we need only believe. If we open ourselves to His love, we’ll find the proof is all around us. I love this, Dee. As always, you touch our hearts with grace and truth. ~ Much love, Bobbie

    • Yes, Bobbie, humility leads to deep faith. I love what you say that if we open ourselves to God’s love, we will find the proof is all around us. Thank you, Bobbie for such words of light and wisdom. Love, Dee

  2. What must it have been like to go up to Jesus, and ask such a question? The Word of God is written in a non nonsense fashion and often we miss the entire scene – we just go in for the facts and miss the entire picture. How did He turn to face them? who was standing around Him? He was never alone unless He took Himself away to pray. The prospect you propose – what John the Baptist did – is to confront, ask – but think about it – God. All the years, the kings and the prophets battles, wars, exile and then – I AM. I guess what I’m trying to say is that once He is asked, once you really want to know, the enormity of that “yes,” will sink in – really sink in, Jesus will sit down, break the bread, teach, save.

    • Wow, Sandra, your thoughtful comment is giving me goosebumps. How true that we often go through the Bible in a state of mental assent, but if we transport ourselves into the very scenes with Jesus, perhaps the ground we are standing on would tremble, and we ourselves would be shaken to the core. I am awestruck by what you say about the enormity of that “yes”, and the I AM — not perhaps, not maybe, but a definite “yes”, of how the Eternal One, entered time and dwelt among us. I love how you end your comment — “Jesus will sit down, break the bread, teach, save.” Thank you so much for your beautiful comment, Sandra!

  3. Jesus had to deal with the element of doubt that they were struggling with (including His own cousin John – because, as He said, A prophet is not honored in his own country or his own house…because, well, his kinfolk know him too well. “Boy, I changed your diapers and wiped your snotty little nose! And now you’re calling yourself the Son of God?!? Get outta here!”) So, He told them, “What do your own eyes and ears tell you? You’re seeing and hearing people getting healed and delivered…what does that tell you? That the Kingdom of God is indeed at hand (Luke 11:20). Thanks, Dee, for reminding us that we just need to come to Him, to come to Him openly, and He will receive us – at whatever level we are.


    • That’s true, Lester. Yes, I can just imagine how his kinfolk must have doubted Jesus and His words. And yet, in spite of all the doubts of mankind, Jesus Christ remains the central figure in history, with millions upon millions of hearts transformed when they called on His Name and believed in Him as the Savior of their souls and of the world. Thank you, Lester, as always. Dee

  4. Amen…I like your reference to Martin Luther….his stance against the Catholic Church and the Pope…was formed on his passion to look to Christ and his need to follow no other……thanks for the good read!

  5. Thank you for for emphasizing the need to recognize Christ as the only True Savior. I appreciated your statement: “They have considered Jesus and made the decision to look to no other: Jesus Christ is the incomparable One, the Son of God, the Savior and Light of the World, the Way, the Truth and the Life.”

    AMEN! What a wonderful gift of grace to come to a recognition that Christ is our All. Wonderful posting. Thank yoiu again!
