A Closer Look
Three Jimson flowers reminded me of the three crosses on Calvary where Jesus and the two thieves were crucified. One thief repented and came close to Jesus and was saved, the other mocked him and was separated from him for all eternity. They all looked like men; men created in the image of God, but one was God in the man Jesus. Take a closer look at Jesus. If you have rejected him, reconsider your decision. I met two men on the trail, one was in his 60's the other was 86. They asked me what I did with the pictures. I told them I sent them out on the Internet, with Bible verses. Both said that they had left the church at the age of nineteen. I said that I had come to Jesus at the age nineteen. The oldest said,"they made us memorize Psalm 23." I asked him who the shepherd was in that Psalm. I don't know, he said. I said he was Jesus. Come and follow Jesus for eternal life. The other one scoffed, saying I never read the Bible. He said that there are all kinds of people. They need to take a closer look at Jesus.
Luke 23:39 And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.
Heb 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Gen 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.
Rom 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
A string instrument? Perhaps the old violin. One of the two men said, look there is the bow, could you give me a copy of this? I would give him Jesus, for like the old violin it has little worth until it is touched by the master's hand. We are His instruments for good or for evil. Let us be used by the LORD, and through him, bless others.
Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
