An Offering…

Sept. 4, 2013

“… Even though he’d never hurt a soul or said one word that wasn’t true.” Isaiah 53:9 The Message

It really is amazing that Jesus would offer himself for sin .. your sin .. and make His life prosper in you. Every second of your life .. your family history .. and all the circumstances and situations that you have experienced are found in that offering. It can seem so severe: life made whole and true in Christ or life lived without Christ. One life is made whole by His offering. One life tries to fill the holes without Him. But God’s plan is for you to have and live “more life” in Christ. He never said one word that “wasn’t true”. Everything God wants for your life is true. His life was offered for you. His life is offered to you. And His life will be an offering through you. It only takes a moment …

“… The plan was that he give himself as an offering for sin so that he’d see life come from it — life, life, and more life. And God’s plan will deeply prosper through him.” Isaiah 53:10 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
