Daily Glory Devotions

Have you ever seen one those paintings of Jesus where He is depicted as a tall lean blond man lounging in a field in a white robe holding a bunch of lambs? Who paints those things?
This is not the image of our God as depicted in His word. Jesus was a rough and burly man. Full of fire and passion. A warrior when it came to doing battle against those who offended the sacred things of the Father. Yet, in a moment, able to touch a young child with hands of gentleness. To us, the warrior is just as critical as the gentle shepherd. By His holy passion for righteousness, we are continually moved on to perfection. By His gentle love, we are continually comforted in our lessons of life. Let us never lose sight of the God who is a fierce warrior.
