Do you really know Jesus?

Jesus as the Good Shepherd. This is one of my Paintings.

1 Corinthians Chapter 8 verse 6.

There is but one Lord,

Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.

The above is of course taken from the Holy Bible. Just imagine that everything that has been made has been made by God our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ His Son. So we did not evolve from anything, we are made in the image of the man Jesus. He did not evolve from an Ape or anything else, he was born as a baby and grew into an adult man. Each evolves after it’s own kind. Just think an Oak tree cannot from it’s seed turn into an Apple tree. Even as man is born from the first man and woman that God made on this earth. So there we are (how about that then)?

Here is one animal (a Kangaroo) specially made for our harsh climate here,
that I decided to paint.

I hope you have a lovely day in the knowledge that you and I are made in the image of God who loves us just as we are. Know that we did not evolve from some odd source and let us be glad.

Goodness

ShepherdSheep2

Zechariah: Chapter 9 verse 17

For how great is His goodness

and

how great is His beauty!

***

How can we comprehend the beauty of God, He must be magnificent.  With Jesus sitting on His right hand side, surrounded by Glory, also with Angels singing Holy, Holy, Holy is The LORD. His beauty must be incredible.

From book: ‘Drink from the Cup’  with  Bible verse from King James version.

What do you  think about God’s goodness especially to us as His people……?

Goodness is different from being good.

Really none of us can claim to be Good only God is Good.   We all fall short of being good in one way or another.  We can try day by day to be better Christians but the fact still remains that God our Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit can truly be GOOD.

Angel 1

So what about Goodness then?

Well  GOODNESS I believe is different from being GOOD.  

God showers His GOODNESS on us day by day

What does His GOODNESS consist of:

I  think it consists of our daily needs that He supplies us with. Also – although His beauty is great He allows us to see beauty….think of the lovely Sunsets, the Sunrise –  His GOODNESS would include our family, friends, pets, different foods that we like to enjoy, rest & recreation – as well of the works that He allows us to do.

So it is GOOD to do something GOOD for our God but that does not make us GOOD.

Jesus is the only one who is GOOD that has walked on this earth as a human being, none of us can compare ourselves with Jesus.  Nor should we try to compare ourselves with Him but we can try to walk a Goodly life in the Love of the Lord Jesus who is our Lord and Saviour.

The Good Shepherd cares for His Sheep

The Good Shepherd cares for His Sheep

I pray that you have a GOOD day in the Love of the LORD.

* Remember we are His Sheep and He cares for us *
