In reading Old Testament prophecy regarding God's promised Messiah, I understand more and more why the nation's leaders did not believe Christ was the promised Messiah.
But the real issue now is about me personally. With what expectations do I view God? Do my expectations of what he will do in my own life personally affect my view of what in fact he is doing?
Also, how much am I influenced in how I see Christ's work in my life, and in the world, by the pressures of the world's philosophy? Do I okay things God has called sin, 'cuz the world has done so? Do I have an entitlement outlook. A soppy sentimental faith?
These are questions that are searching my heart. My deepest desire is to see Christ as he is, and live my life according to His will and purpose. To grow up in him.
When I was a child, I spoke like a child,
I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I gave up childish ways.
For now we see in a mirror dimly,
but then face to face.
Now I know in part;
then I shall know fully,
even as have been fully known.( I Corinthians 13:11-12 ESV)
What a day!!!!
