Consider This.... May 27, 2007

I am currently doing a Bible study on-line with Beth Moore. It is entitled "Living Beyond Yourself". It is about the gifts of the Spirit and how the Holy Spirit works in us. Today's homework was quite impacting. Consider this: In Judges 6:24 it says, "Then the Spirit of the Lord came upon Gideon." The words came upon are the word labesh, in Hebrew. It means to wrap around, put on a garment or to clothe. God himself became the covering for Gideon's guilt and the armour for Gideon's victory. So, I likewise have been clothed with Christ. In other words, I am enfolded in the arms of Christ, like a baby swaddled tightly and surrounded by the arms of its Abba, Father. Mmmmm. Is that comforting, or what?
