A Word of Encouragement for the Holiday

Nicanor is the long time leader of a ministry in Nepal and Northern India where the work is hard and the persecution real. He wrote a devotional this week to encourage us to keep on keeping on. I wanted to post a portion of it here for you

A man of God called Gregory of Nazianzus  AD 381 wrote about Jesus this way;

He began His ministry by being hungry, yet He is the Bread of Life.
Jesus ended His earthly ministry by being thirsty, yet He is the Living Water.
Jesus was weary, yet He is our rest. Jesus paid tribute, yet He is the King. 

Jesus was accused of having a demon, yet He cast out demons.
Jesus wept, yet He wipes away our tears.
Jesus was sold for thirty pieces of silver, yet He redeemed the world.
Jesus was brought as a lamb to the slaughter, yet He is the Good Shepherd.
Jesus died, yet by His death He destroyed the power of death.
