Jan | 13 | FOUND! The eternal spring of chocolate caramel


FOUND! The eternal spring of chocolate caramel

John 1:14
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. NKJV

I tell you; draw near to me, and you shall find a field full of shallow grave faults.

God the Father has many adopted sons but only one begotten Son, Jesus Christ the Lord. This same Jesus is the flash in His Fathers eye, who from the light of His own bright eyes, floodlights the darkest corners of the world. The platinum cup of this particular glory which John speaks of here is carried aloft on top of victorious championship shoulders by two easily gripped and exceptionally tactile hands called grace and truth. So tactile in fact, that John says by these handles they beheld Jesus, they took a very close look at Him, watched Him with intriguing gaze, examined Him with growing expectancy, touched Him to see if He was real and solid, to see if He hummed and buzzed with life, to see if He had goodness and power in Him, and then, when they saw the golden white ‘shekinah’ brightness bubble and fizz out of Him with warm inviting delight, like apple bobbin children, they stuck their heads full into the wide top of that golden goblet from on High and sucked up the nectar of all refreshing, and whilst wiping their dripping chops on their satisfied sleeve, looked at one another and said: “Man this is rich; this is enriched indeed! This is fortified food me boys, all packed and full to bursting with the rich chocolate and caramel of grace and truth.” And I tell you friends, never did a mixed and golden cup taste so good.

So, we too when we draw near to Jesus, shall also behold the Father’s glory, even those eternal acres full to bursting with grace and truth.

Jesus is, of course, the fourteen hundred years old answer to the prayer of Moses “Now, show me your glory…”(Exodus 33:18) and, for sure, Moses’ very prayer was answered on the Mount of transfiguration. (Matt 17:1,2). However, it was the daily sojourn of the Son of God among sinful men and women where He showed Himself to be the very embodiment of old Testament mercy and faithfulness, that inexhaustible and living chocolate caramel fountain, full of favor, beneficence, welfare, and loving kindness. Not only revealing sin, but forgiving it! By comparison, the Old Testament shadows of mercy and faithfulness had now ceased to be ghosts and had assumed the solid and full form of grace and truth in Jesus and it is these two things which humanity needs most of all, and it is these two things which formed the scrutinized testimony of those who were with Him. It’s worth reading again, isn’t it?

Listen:- And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14 NKJV

Pray: -  Jesus, we lay hold of You, we grip Your grace and truth and drink deeply of all Your goodness. So forever cover us with the dripping sweetness of your love, that we might taste and be tasted to be found good. Amen and amen.
