The Link Was Penned & Compiled By Peter Reilly
We’re Not Talkin’… Computer Links, or Golf Links or Missing Links! Today we reach out to understand the most important Link there ever is, and or was. We’re talkin’ … the one thing that makes us really special and different…
Often you will hear different religions decry Christianity's Trinity as blasphemy (Shema Yisrael), saying, "there is only one God". They are right… there is only one God… but… and this is a VERY BIG...
Sometimes... It's God Letting A Quarterback Throw For A Record 316 yards… Just To Illustrate The Bible Verse He Treasures The Most… But Is Forbidden To Wear.
Whatever It Is… God Knows What He's Doing
And He Knows How To Get His Message Out...
Even If He Has To Keep It Real Simple &
Show Up In Person... Which He Did…
More Than Once.
Something We All Agree On
If God Would Appear To Abraham As A Man...
What's The Big Stretch... That He Would Actually Come Down Here & Live As We Live,
& Suffer As We Suffer.
Not Just Walking A Mile In Our Shoes,
But A Lifetime
Every Great Teacher
Sees It As His Students See It...
Every Great Coach Has Been There...
That Experience Is...
& Most Sure Way To Really Know
And that is why God came down here in the form of a little baby, born in a simple stable and (with his parents) lived his early life on the run from enemies. Suffering as we suffer. Hungering as we hunger. Weeping as we weep. He knows us from the inside out and He loved us so much that in the end... as precious as life is... He was willing to give up His... experience death and all of man's sins and horrors... just to save us and set us free. He did all that because He Loved YOU & ME.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.
8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.
9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.
The Link Between God & Man Is...
Our Best Friend
Our Surest Hope
Our Greatest Peace
The Guardian Of Our Future & Dreams
The Shepherd Of Our Souls
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honor. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: 7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; 8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
