Skin can be deceiving. In the movies, sometimes a guy who seems like just a murderous jerk is really a murderous giant insectoid alien under his stolen skin. Skin on real humans can mislead, too, generating expectations about the person wearing it. And then there is Jesus' skin, cloaking His glory. And oh, what glory it is!
From my heart to yours
Summer is flying by! And our youngest child just turned twenty—life in general is flying by, too! I’m preparing this week to put on a party celebrating my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. I’m sure that milestone makes them feel like time has moved into hyperdrive. I encourage you to redeem the time, and rejoice in the day the Lord has made, every day!
Serving our sweet Savior,
LeeAnn Bonds, Bible Basics Editor
Read my new blog, Katalambano!. (Katalambano is a Greek word meaning “to lay hold of so as to make one’s own, to take into one’s self, to lay hold of with the mind, to understand, perceive, learn, comprehend.”) Not too much on there yet, but I’m working on it.
