Altogether Lovely One
Have you ever been around someone who brags on themselves and doesn't do a good deed without letting other people know what they did? It's difficult to be in their presence, but Jesus stayed in the presence of people and since He was Light, He told them their error in love, and many times it brought people closer to Him. We love the beautiful comforting Scriptures and we love to hear good things about ourselves; but are we also thankful to GOD when we hear the error of our ways? The Bible says, A wise man loves reproof and will thank you for it, but a fool will hate you.
" Now a certain ruler asked Jesus, saying, “Good Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life?” So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, GOD." (Mark 18:18-21 and Luke 18:18-19)
Isn't it beautiful that Jesus our wonderful Lord wouldn't even take credit on Himself, but gave all credit to our Father in Heaven. Jesus didn't even speak His Own Mind, but He kept His Ears open and attentive to what His Father was thinking and wanted to do or say about the situation. Proverbs 20:6 says "Most men will proclaim each his own goodness, but who can find a faithful man?" There is none good, no not one. When we spend our time trying to be good, we're usually so busy being critical of ourselves and other people for messing up, and sin by comparing ourselves with other people, that our focus is taken off Him Who is good! Let's look to Him, the Author and Finisher of our faith, for:
All that is good, all that is right
Every victory song in the night
Every hope, every life
Comes from above, from the Father of lights!
Altogether Lovely One: Father, Spirit, & The Son
Our Redeemer, Healer, Friend!
Hallelujah forever Amen.
