Reflections of a dead man walking, a sinner condemned to death, an unworthy servant of Christ who has received God's incredible blessings and undeserved forgiveness.

“My God, my #God, why have you forsaken me? All who see me mock me.  They have #pierced my #hands and #feet.  They divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.” — excerpts from #KingDavid’s #Psalm 22 (v1, 7, 16, 18), written hundreds of years before the first #HolyWeek.

…In #AWE of the #God’s endless #secondchances that he freely gives every single day.  Now, who says God’s people, even the most famous and celebrated, were #perfect?  Next time feel we’ve strayed too far away from God, think about these guys:
- #Matthew was a dodgy tax collector.
- #Peter denied #Jesus three times and hid while Jesus was on the cross.
- #Abraham denied Sarah was his wife, not just once, but twice.
- #Jacob was a first-rate cheat and played favourites with his kids.
- #Moses stuttered and ran away from murder.
- #David was both an #adulterer & #murderer.
- #Elijah suffered from #depression.

Then there’s #StPaul, author of 13 out of 27 New Testament books.  When Jesus needed an apostle to the Gentiles, he picked the perfect candidate – #Paul, not just A but THE #enemyofthechurch.  who dragged Jesus’s followers to #prison and even approved stoning them to death.  Yet, Jesus appeared to him and goes on to fiercely preach the grace of the cross, leading to his own death.

Tireless pursuit of his long lost children, changing their hearts and turning their lives completely around — only an #AWESOME God can do that!

——
From the #Parable of the #ProdigalSon - “For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.” #Luke 15:24 #ESV

"Wishing you an AWE-ful New Year"

Despite the blustery, wet weather, London was treated to spectacular fireworks lighting up the #LondonEye, #BigBen and the River Thames.  

And if you’re lucky to welcome 2014 in Dubai, you would have witnessed the biggest fireworks display ever.

What an awe-inspiring sight!

Now then, I’d like to wish and pray that in 2014 we continue to be awed and to be in #awe:

- In awe of the glory of God.  Few people like Daniel, Ezekiel, Peter & John had glorious visions of heaven or witnessed #Jesus’s transfiguration.  Yet, the cosmos, the complex galaxies, God’s creation, truly declare his glory for all of us to behold.  The #BigBang, supernovae and wonders of the universe — now, there’s your ultimate fireworks display!
- In awe of his #love and #grace.  His #mercy never, ever ceases and is truly made new each morning.  A God of a multitude of second chances and who never reneges his promise of forgiveness, and truly makes everything new. 

- In awe of Jesus and his cross.  He is your ultimate #Christmas gift of gifts:  #God himself in the flesh, #Emmanuel, God-with-us.  He is fully God and yet , like you and me, fully human.  Born on Christmas to die on #GoodFriday, and risen on Easter to rescue us all.  The King of King and Lord of Lords & Saviour for everyone and anyone, the One who is the same yesterday, today and forever.

From my family to yours, we wish you a #blessed, #peaceful and truly AWE-ful 2014.
