The tradition of baking a tiny baby Jesus inside is intriguing, some might call it charming. What blew me away is that King Cake has fallen victim to lawsuits.
Dear Reader, I am so blessed to have two godly women as office roomies who are crazy about Jesus. I looked at my friend Rosie, and asked incredulously, "People are choking on Baby Jesus?"
She assured me it was true. I thought about that for a minute.
And you know what, Dear Reader? I think a lot of us choke on Jesus somewhere along the way. Whether we're running after Him, or away, there are times when faith can be just plain hard.
Here's the down and dirty (at least from my point of view). It doesn't matter how we try to dislodge Jesus when He "sticks in our craw", up, out, or through. Jesus doesn't change.
He doesn't change. He doesn't stop doing whatever it takes to remind us of that, or to get our attention. JESUS NEVER STOPS LOVING US.
13 Your kingdom will never end;
Your rule will endure forever.
[You are faithful to Your promise,
and Your acts are marked with grace.][a]
14 The Eternal sustains all who stumble on their way.
For those who are broken down, God is near. He raises them up in hope.
Psalm 145: 13-14 VOICE
The Lord does whatever it takes to get our attention, even letting us "choke on Jesus". Throughout His Word, He also promises to bless us when we're obedient and faithful. This is one of my favorites.
All of the following blessings will be yours—in fact, they’ll chase after you—if you’ll listen to what He tells you.
Deuteronomy 28:2 VOICE
