Child Of Jesus and a Deep thinker. I live outside of the World culture and in the Kingdom Culture, so I can come off as strange and radical sometimes.
Just as you are living, so am I, and we will continue and grow together.
I do mostly illustrations, but i also write poetry and stories

Theme: Jesus is making us a people all his own
When we look at this passage, one temptation is to focus on the things we (or others) need to do, and miss Paul’s end message. The context of this passage is that Paul is writing to his protege Titus who he has tasked with correcting behavioral and theological problems in the building of the church in Crete.
While he gives Titus many corrections, they all point toward the authentic Christian gospel that proclaims the grace of what Jesus has done.
There will be times when we will be confronted to see those thing that need correcting in our lives. However, at the heart of these corrections are the grace and love that has been shown to us through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
During this Lenten season let us pray that God would embed our interactions with a deeper understanding of the gospel, out which we would be motivated to live as he shown us, as Paul tells the people of Crete to live, to God’s glory.

Theme: The Lamb of God:
In this passage, John the Baptizer, a forerunner to Jesus, identifies Jesus as the Lamb of God.
In ancient Judaism, a lamb without blemish was sacrificed to memorialize God’s deliverance of his people from slavery. this lamb was referred to as the “Passover Lamb”.
In many church services, the words in communion liturgies affirm this belief in the words, "Christ our Passover was sacrificed for us." These Words are recited to remember that Jesus is the Lamb of God, and through his sacrifice on the cross, we are reconciled to God.
Jesus was the ultimate Passover lamb. He, though sinless, gave his life up for ours.
As you journey through this season of Lent, reflect upon what personal implications this sacrifice makes on your own life. Because of His sacrifice for you, what are you wiling to sacrifice for him?
