Jesus is a paradox

We see Jesus on the Cross!

How can this be our deliverer?

We hear the promises to Joseph

and his dreams

But than Joseph is falsely accused

and bound in chains in a prison

in Egypt!

We read of Paul’s mission

Then Paul is beaten over and over

and captured and imprisoned?

We read of Abraham’s vision

than his one and only son is

bound to an altar with

a blade in its downward arc

G. K. Chesterton aptly wrote

“A Paradox Is Truth standing

on her head to get attention.”

When we look over our lives

What paradoxes are we experiencing?

These men mentioned were

Steadfast, immovable and always abounding

in the work of the Lord

They knew that their labor was not in vain

In the Lord
