They Missed Him!


They were looking for a Lion, He came as a Lamb, and they missed Him.
 
They were looking for a Warrior, He came as a Peacemaker, and they missed Him.
 
They were looking for a King, He came as a Servant, and they missed Him.
 
They were looking for liberation from Rome, He submitted to the Roman cross, and they missed Him.
 
They were looking for a fit to their mold, He was the mold maker, and they missed Him.
 
What are you looking for? Lion? Warrior? King? Liberator? What are you looking for?
 
They were looking for their temporal needs to be met.  He came to meet their eternal needs, and they missed Him.
 
He came as a Lamb to be sacrificed for your sin.  Will you miss Him?
 
He came to make peace between God and man.  Will you miss Him?
 
He came to model servanthood for all mankind.  Will you miss Him?
 
He came that we might have true liberty.  Will you miss Him?
 
He came to give you eternal life.  Will you miss Him?
 
When we submit to the Lamb, we will meet the Lion.  Join with the Peacemaker, and we will meet the Warrior.  Work with the Servant, and we will meet the King.  Walk with the Submitted, and we will meet the Liberator.  Concern ourselves with the eternal, and we will have the temporal.
 
If Jesus is not fitting into the mold you have, then come to the Moldmaker and get His new one.  Submit to His plan for your life, and you will see the eternal need met first, then all the other things you have need of will be taken care of as well.
