An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Deep Dive

2Co 5:21 KJV)  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

(Proverbs 28 also read)

As I was thanking God for the incarnation this verse came to mind.  I know how we marvel in this and take it literally, and I think with the right amount of wonder we can do that.  It is not enough.

In expressing this Paul was in that realm of the impossible where he was trying to express that which is impossible to express.  Later on in the letter he touches on this in another context.

(2Co 12:4 KJV)  How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
This is just another way of trying to express the glory of salvation, a salvation bought by the sacrifice of the Perfect Lamb of God.

So?  Spend some time meditating on this.  That doesn’t mean find a new age mantra and hum it.  It means try to delve into the infinite depths of Almighty God becoming because we had no hope if He didn’t.  Rejoice.
