A pretty good swap…

“All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him,” Isaiah 53:6 NAS

This is your life. It isn’t a partial picture .. it is the life that Jesus came to find in out of the way places. He found you out in the open .. maybe astray .. but more often in very normal everyday situations. We don’t like to think of ourselves as “gone astray” .. “turned to our own way” .. and so messed up that it took Another to take every messed up and broken pieces of our life to make us whole. But He did. He was born a baby who ends up being described as the hope for the whole world. God’s answer to your life was His Son. He made the exchange. He accepted the dishonor and complete rejection. He accepted it on your behalf. His life is your gift. Enjoy the new identity you have in Christ. It only takes a moment …

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
