This Christmas seems to be the year for me to contemplate the Incarnation of Jesus. (Last year my theme was Follow the Light.) I am overcome, today, by HIS chosing to leave HIS position to come in the lowly 'clothing' of humanity - just for love of me and each other man of HIS creation.
As I read a section in Hebrews today from the Amplified Bible, I was struck with the concept of eternity, and the concept of righteous rule. Sometimes reading words from a different version can spark new thoughts - and for me lately, they seem to often be 'graphics' instead of words. :) (I wouldn't have it any other way!)
Hebrews 1:8 (AMP) But as to the Son, He says to Him, Your throne, O God, is forever and ever (to the ages of the ages), and the scepter of Your kingdom is a scepter of absolute righteousness (of justice and straightforwardness).
