“In these last days, He has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed the heir of all things and through whom He made the universe. He is the exact radiance of His glory, the exact expression of His nature, and sustains all things by His powerful word.” Hebrews 1:2-3.. HCS

This Son came to save us from our sins. He came to break down that invisible wall and barrier between God and us .. God and you. He came to win back your heart .. renew your mind .. and restore your strength. He could have come with an un-defeatable army. Instead, He came with a word: believe .. trust .. repent .. receive .. take up your cross .. serve .. love .. go .. and follow Me. His arsenal of vowels framed words of healing .. hope .. and home. He was always pointing to His Father. Everything about Jesus was all right and all wrong. He was sinless and yet never looked the other way or went the other way when He encountered someone sick or diseased. In fact, Jesus seems to go out of His way to heal untouchable and unacceptable men and women. He’s come to “set things right”. Jesus will step into the most hopeless situation facing you. Jesus is being born into all the wrong settings. He wasn’t welcome in his backyard. He came to die. He gave us Himself as a guaranteed promise of what was to come. You can step into this day with the knowledge that Jesus isn’t going to quit or give up on your life. The Son has come for you and His words are the final words for your life and everyday existence. It only takes a moment …

“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. Far-flung ocean islands wait expectantly for his teaching.” Isaiah 42:3 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
