>Embraced by Love

Ever feel like Alexander in the horrible, terrible, no good day? Are you human enough to get “down” occasionally? Here’s a timely reminder from a Puritan author:

Is it a small thing in your eyes to be loved by God – to be the son, the
spouse, the love, the delight of the King of glory? Christian, believe
this, and think about it: you will be eternally embraced in the arms of
the love which was from everlasting, and will extend to everlasting – of
the love which brought the Son of God’s love from heaven to earth, from
earth to the cross, from the cross to the grave, from the grave to glory
– that love which was weary, hungry, tempted, scorned, scourged,
buffeted, spat upon, crucified, pierced – which fasted, prayed, taught,
healed, wept, sweated, bled, died. That love will eternally embrace you.

Richard Baxter

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
