I am Redeemed | Day 38 August 08 2015, 0 Comments
In case you missed the announcement about this NEW SERIES | #TruthAboutWhoYouAre take a moment to check out this blog post.
This is Day 38 of 48 of the #TruthAboutWhoYouAre series. Thank you so much for joining in on this journey with me. I hope you are inspired over this 7 week series.
I am a doer of the Word and blessed in my actions - James 1:22 & 25A little bit about Miss Ashley Jackson | raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest for over 20 years. Parents, four siblings and their spouses, nephews and niece all still reside in Washington state. Called to “The Promised Land” (Texas) April 2011. Loving the sunshine, big hair, sparkles, Gateway Church and all things “southern.” Greatest passion is STEWARDSHIP of every area of life – calling, resources, relationships, finances, legacy and home. Excited to continue to learn to be a “Southern Belle” and anointed “Domestic Diva” in Dallas.
Have any of you seen any of the Jimmy Fallon “Ew!” skits? Oh my goodness, they are hilarious and over the top! Character Sara (played by Jimmy himself) talks about everything that is “ew” in the world. Well, curses are Ew! and I think Jesus thinks so too!
Hebrews 12:2 says, “fixing our eyes on Jesus, the [b]author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, DESPISING the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God…” Despise in this passage denotes to loathe something; repulse. Jesus endured the cross because He was so repulsed by the curse of the law and effects on His people (Gal 3:13).
He is not repulsed by you, but moved with great compassion to see you free.
There are things in each of our lives that He wants to REDEEM. We are redeemed from the curse of sin. Sickness and poverty no have to wreck havoc on our lives. Unlike character Sara who says “Ew!” about everything in the skit, Jesus might say Ew! But He does something about it.
