A Most Unusual Topic

I re-post this for my atheist friend ARK, who I would appreciate your prayer for… I have an alarm which reminded me every waking hour yesterday to pray for ARK…

22 For so you will heap coals of fire on his head,
And the Lord will reward you. (NKJV)

Blessings in Christ, bruce

Jesus, that’s who.

Within the next twenty-four hours he would face excruciating pain, total abandonment by his Father, and the most horrific death ever devised.

But his concern was for his disciples, not himself.  Jesus wanted them to remember the important principles of love, obedience, and joy–an empowering joy that no one could take away from them.
