Consider the Greatness

46 ( 29 | 17 )

Jesus told us that loving the Lord our God with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength was the greatest commandment, it is the manifestation of the whole law distilled into a single idea. We fail at this always since we cannot ever fully complete it; however, we also fail in ways which should not be. Every time we have a sin problem, what we really have is a love problem. We don't love God enough, we don't love Jesus enough… we love our flesh and we love our sin. So the solution to sin IS love, and the solution to love is sight… we don't love God enough because we don't see Him clearly enough. We allow the world to define our vision of God, the culture to frame and curtail His self-revelation, and our own sinful hearts to relegate Him to a Sunday morning obligation, rather than a constant source and target for our lives. We all came from Him and we will all return to Him. And that return will be to Him AS HE ACTUALLY IS! With this in mind I want to consider the greatness of this man, Jesus Christ, to think on who He is, what He has done and what He offers to His children. We see Him both foreshadowed and pre-incarnate in this man Melchizedek, and through the submission of Abraham (and through him all the people of God) unto Him we find that this greatness was shining fully. Abraham saw Him clearly, and prayerfully, so too shall we!
