He looked around the carpentry shop. He stood for a moment in the refuge of the little room that housed so many sweet memories. He balanced the hammer in his hand. He ran his fingers across the sharp teeth of the saw. He had come to say good-bye.
It was time for him to leave. He had heard something that made him know it was time to go. So he came one last time to smell the sawdust and lumber.
Life was peaceful here. Life was so...safe...
I wonder if he wanted to stay...I wonder because I know he has already read the last chapter. He knew that the feet that would step out of the safe shadow of the carpentry shop would not rest until they'd been pierced and placed on a Roman cross...
If there was any hesitation on the part of humanity, it was overcome by the compassion of his divinity. His divinity heard the voices...And his divinity saw faces...From the face of Adam to the face of the infant born somewhere in the world as you read these words, he saw them all.
And you can be sure of one thing. Among the voices that found their way into that carpentry shop in Nazareth was your voice...Not only did he hear you, he saw you. He saw your face aglow the hour you first knew him. He saw your face in shame the hour you first fell. The same face that looked back at you from this morning's mirror, looked at him. And it was enough to kill him.
He left because of you.
He laid his security down with his hammer. He hung tranquility on the peg with his nail apron. He closed the window shutters on the sunshine of his youth and locked the door on the comfort and ease of anonymity.
Since he could not bear the thought of your hopelessness, he chose to leave. It wasn't easy. Leaving the carpentry shop never has been. But he chose the cross. For you.
Stop the spamming, spamming for Jesus is not cool.
Would Jesus be a spammer?
Or would Jesus be the kind of person who was respectful of forum rules and only say what he had to say once without spamming his message by starting topic after topic?
Being attentive to the "spirit" of the law?
