How Sweet the Father's Love for Us

As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him.

Psalm 103:13

This is how lovely you are, when you come to the Savior, confessing need for Him. His gaze is so pure and so loving, (and MERCIFUL, considering how holy his eyes are) that everything dark simply withers to naught. It is His Love-liness, that you reflect, when you gaze back.

Dare to gaze back. Dare to look in the mirror of his Word, until it becomes a window, with which to glimpse his Kingdom. He is our spotless Lamb, the perfect sacrifice for our sins and the narrow gate, into it.

Dare to lift your eyes to Him and endure the fear of eternal shame for a fleeting moment. The Lord has pity on those who fear him and lifted the burden of sin and death at the cross and resurrection. That sweet rolling away of the stone. Jesus walked out of that tomb, folding the linen that wrapped his dead body in the way a Hebrew master indicates, at the supper table for his servant, that he will return. (Brilliant, right? Goodness, I love Him! )

Cross the chasm of sin, to a perfect Father, with the blood of Christ. With his living Word. He will shatter that fear, shame and pride so quickly, that your heart will start to beat again and you will begin to breathe. To live. And truly, love.

"Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God." (Hebrews 12:1-2)
