Sunday Scriptures (Monday edition)

ABC scriptures X

 

This ABC scripture verse is used for the letter “X” in eXalt. I love that this verse corresponded perfectly with the sermon the preacher at our new church here in Georgia preached yesterday. He reminded us that God is holy! God is not a casual God. God is not grandfather like figure that guides us. God is our all powerful, all knowing creator, redeemer and source of life! It was a punch in the gut for me, because sometimes I like to put God in a box. I tend to limit what I think God can do or how much he cares about all aspects of our lives. God is holy!

It reminds me of those shirts that are popular right now that say “Jesus is my homeboy.” I’m not calling anyone out for wearing them. I almost bought one for Luke because I thought it was cute. Of course, I had to look up the definition of homeboy and the dictionary states that a homeboy is: “a young acquaintance from one’s own town or neighborhood, or from the same social background”. I can assure you that after reading that definition, Jesus is certainly NOT anyone’s homeboy! Jesus is our Savior. He is our way to heaven. He is sinless and holy… he is NOT our homeboy.
