God touched man all through the ages, but never so much as when He came in the flesh of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus lived in our skin, breathed the air that we breathe, and walked the earth the we walk on. Jesus experienced trials just as we do...and He conquered them! His example touches every facet of our lives and enables us to have faith instead fear and know-that-we-know that we can't go under for going over!
Jesus comes to us in the now and directly at the point of our need... With His now-ness so that we need never look back to that physical, visible, limited form of 2,000 years ago, but sit with Him in heavenly places... in the now!... And with His eternal riches and power and glory available to us every moment.
The early Christians greeted each other with the word, 'Maranatha,' which means: the Lord cometh. They were comforted when persecution confronted them. The thrones of the kings of that day mattered little in comparison with the throne of their King and Lord. His coming draws nigh. Let us live in love, courage and calm certainty.
