“He won’t brush aside the bruised and the hurt and he won”t disregard the small and insignificant, but he’ll steadily and firmly set things right. He won’t tire out and quit. He won’t be stopped until he’s finished his work —  to set things right on earth. …”?

What is He doing…?

He is setting things right in your life… He is working at this moment amidst all your bruises.   He became the pile of “sins” that had only your name on them. You may have tried to clean it up … your sins … your bruises … even the small and insignificant things. Instead it leaves you tired … ready to quit … always stuck. Jesus became a servant because there was no other way you would have let him “pile” on your sins … no other way to become friends with the disregarded small and insignificant … no other way for Him to find you and bring you home when you were lost.  He won’t quit or give up on your life. He found you when you “wandered” off. He has taken your pile … it doesn’t belong to you anymore … so let Him have it … all of it. It only takes a moment … your pile, your wrongs, your everything: sins and bruises. Jesus loves you enough to carry your life with all that is in it … why don’t you let Him start with what you are carrying today?  

” We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done the wrong on him, on him” Isaiah 53:6 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
