Send in the rescue party…..

“who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father…” Galatians 1:4 HCS

He came with a single purpose .. to rescue you .. to battle an enemy you could never defeat .. and restore the joy, delight, and love that was stolen and lost. His power now rests in His nail scarred hands and feet. No one is exempt from sin’s tempting voice to pursue your own will first and fight your own battles within yourself. The Son has come to rescue you from yourself and the world you live in everyday. The Lord stands ready everyday to battle on your behalf. It may be a paralyzing attitude .. a series of bad choices .. a nagging worry or clinging habit. This barn-birthed savior arrives exactly on time. Perfect love? … He knows nothing else. Perfect timing? … He laughs at rulers who conspire against Him. (Ps.2:4) He is near the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit.(Ps.34:18) He is tireless in his saving operation. He won’t quit or give up on you until you are found whole. He doesn’t compare you against anyone else. He’s come to fulfill every demand against your life. Today .. let the Son delight in you. Then share it as a fresh gift. Because .. it only takes a moment …

“The Lord your God is among you, a warrior who saves. He will rejoice over you with gladness. He will bring you quietness with His love. He will delight in you with shouts of joy.” Zephaniah 3:17 HCS

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
