Galatians 3:13...



According to the Scripture anyone who was hung on a tree was cursed.
Jesus took our curse for us when He died on the cross. 
The following verse says He then blessed us with the same blessings He gave Abraham.
Blessing instead of curses...now that's a wonderful trade!

still following,

    Oh, I just love that chapter where God advises us to choose between life and death; blessings and curses and then telling us that He is Life!
    Much love XX

  2. When I think "men" of the world who want power - and with that powerful do not truly liberate but control - and I think of the son of man and His Father with all the power in the universe - who liberates and loves - it just WOWS me!

  4. I love this picture. I love how the tree seems to be tenaciously clinging to the edge of that cliff. Rather like we need to be clinging to the cross of Christ.

    I need to be a little more tenacious... Sigh...
