They were looking for their temporal needs to be met,
He came to meet their eternal need,
and they missed Him
They were looking for a lion,
He came as a Lamb;
They were looking for a warrior,
He came as a Peacemaker;
They were looking for a king,
He came as a Servant;
They were looking for liberation from Rome,
He submitted to the Roman stake;
They were looking for a fit to their mold,
He was the mold maker,
and they totally missed Him.
What are you looking for?
Lion? Warrior? King? Liberator?
He came as a Lamb
to be sacrificed for your sin;
to make peace between God and man;
to model servanthood for all humanity;
to give you eternal life.
Will you miss Him?
When we submit to the Lamb,
we will meet the Lion;
join with the Peacemaker,
we will meet the Warrior;
work with the Servant,
we will meet the King;
walk with the Submitted,
we will meet the Liberator.
Concern ourselves with the eternal,
and we will have the temporal.
If Jesus is not fitting into the mold you have,
then come to the mold maker and get a new one.
Submit to His plan for your life
and you will see the eternal need met first;
then all the other things you have need of
will be taken care of as well.
With prayers, love and Shalom
