RECESS CALLED

Dear Bloggers, let’s take a recess a bit. We still have John to go on our Five Men Who Knew God; but I am tired and ready to relax a bit.

Want to share a glorious thought to relax on. I have been wading through the Books of the Law, namely Exodus, Numbers, and Leviticus. As I so often complain and ask Jesus how it is that I’m in these books again. My answers are generally that they show me how much “order” means to God. He is not haphazard and he takes no haphazard gifts or sacrifices.

But this time around I have grown so thankful for Jesus’s having “finished” all that blood sacrifice with its laws and traditions! When he hung on that cross and said “it is finished” and the veil was rent top to bottom … hallelujah! My pastor is preaching from Hebrews now also. Keeps driving home how much better our Great High Priest is.

Another meditation I have had recently is regarding how long Jesus hung on the cross before he said, “It is finished.” As he hung there, did the sins of all man roll like a movie as he willingly let each of our sins hang on him? Did my sins make him hang there? Yes. Mine and yours. Maybe even the sins being committed by those who don’t accept his forgiveness.

Have a blessed day, I expect to be back with John tomorrow. The next day I will be showing commonalities in their lives that made them special people who knew God. By the way, we have the same thing in common.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
