What Are We Looking For?

 

They were looking for a lion; He came as a Lamb...

And they missed Him.

 

They were looking for a warrior; He came as a Peacemaker...

And they missed Him.

 

They were looking for a king; He came as a Servant...

And they missed Him.

 

They were looking for liberation from Rome; He submitted to the Roman cross...

And they missed Him.

 

They were looking for a fit to their mold; He was the mold maker...

And they missed Him.

 

They were looking for their temporal needs to be met; He came to meet their eternal need...

And they missed Him.

 

He came as a Lamb to be sacrificed for our sin...

Will we miss Him?

He came to make peace between God and man...

Have we missed Him?

He came to model servanthood for all mankind...

Have we missed Him?

He came that we might have true liberty.

Have we missed Him?

He came to give us eternal life....

Have we missed Him?

 

When we submit to the Lamb...

We will meet the lion.

 

When we join with the Peacemaker...

We will meet the Warrior.

 

When we work with the Servant...

We will meet the King.

 

When we walk with the Submitted...

We will meet the Liberator.

 

When we concern ourselves with the Eternal...

We will have the temporal.

 

  If Jesus is not fitting into our mold, then come to the mold maker. Submit to His plan for life, and we will see our eternal needs met; then all other needs will be met as well.
