Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
I can only say this, friends, it is Day #11, and I am just speechless, wordless, each time I contemplate this, this…heart. I hit a wall of utter inability to describe what is beyond description.
In Day #3 we talked about how His heart is holy. All that comes from it is perfect, higher, best of bests…but a holy heart alone would not have sent a Messiah who in all his holiness would die that all the poor, helpless ones, all of us, might touch his holiness.
A heart that is holy and for relationship bound in everlasting love and acting in mercy and grace…it takes all of these for holiness to come near. For holiness to be a gift bestowed and draw all who would receive into the sweet intimate of awed and hushed worship.
Knee bowed and heart full…I come and behold God of very God, this Jesus, making himself lowest of lows and pouring out the holy love of eternity, every last bit, holding nothing back, that all that it is to be holy would be all that it is to love.
I pray, friend, you are, with me, realizing the infinite depths of this heart that to peer in gazing faith reveal only a greater wealth fit for nothing less than all of eternity’s knowing…
…And that this eternity’s pursuit would become the consuming fire to fuel life’s true living.
