The Intent of This Blog

This blog is intended to be a tool for the growth of whoever wants to use it. It is a daily journal intended to help us be more introspective. Every day I will do my best to supply a motivational quote, a Bible verse, a vocabulary word, and a personal message from myself. Use these if you like as motivation to improve yourself. Then, simply answer the daily questions provided honestly and see if it has an impact on your life. Zig Ziglar said, "If you don't have daily objectives, you qualify as a dreamer." Lets not be just dreamers but doers. Remember Martin Luther King Jr not only had a dream, he also had an objective. Thanks for reading, Jake

Cross...


“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” – Albert Einstein

God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that we might receive the full rights of sons.  Galatians 4:4-5

Ethereal:  “of or relating to the heavens : heavenly”  Merriam-Webster Dictionary

Two timbers lashed together.  They form a cross, the tool used to sacrifice our King and Savior.  Although used to execute many, Jesus made it infamous as a symbol to portray His love for us throughout time.  But why a cross?  The point where the beam and the post form a crossing, an intersection, that is what gives the cross its distinct capability to carry out its purpose.  Its purpose to torture, maim, and kill.  But the cross is so much more than the intersection of two pieces of wood.  It’s the intersection of our mortal lives and our everlasting potential.  It forms the point at which we can cross from mere humans to justified, redeemed, and saved souls.  Like every symbol and message He’s given, God’s symbol of our salvation is so much, so much more than merely what meets the eye.  In everything, God provides a message and a lesson.  Finding them can change our lives forever.  The cross and the crossing is the ultimate example.
