From Problem to Person

We had a problem
          so He became a person
-Jeremy Rios

The God I serve is not the impersonal God, the deist God...

He is Jesus the Jew of Nazareth:

"The servant grew up before God—a scrawny seedling,
   a scrubby plant in a parched field.
There was nothing attractive about him,
   nothing to cause us to take a second look.
He was looked down on and passed over,
   a man who suffered, who knew pain firsthand.
One look at him and people turned away.
   We looked down on him, thought he was scum.
But the fact is, it was our pains he carried—
   our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us.
We thought he brought it on himself,
   that God was punishing him for his own failures.
But it was our sins that did that to him,
   that ripped and tore and crushed him—our sins!
He took the punishment, and that made us whole.
   Through his bruises we get healed.
We're all like sheep who've wandered off and gotten lost.
   We've all done our own thing, gone our own way.
And God has piled all our sins, everything we've done wrong,
   on him, on him" (Isaiah 53: 2-6)

Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my web browser because I'vе hаd this happеn
previously. Аpprecіate it

One thing you're likely to need to have when approaching using coupons for buying is to create a discount binder. This binder can help you continue to be arranged and get a continuous availability of coupons for each and every go to. You may stock up on discount coupons that don't expire for some time, and you can also stock up on discount coupons that you use persistently. [url=http://www.ss12w12ws.info]Matrimo5656[/url]
