“Jesus was our Sabbath in action,
emptying himself to come here,
releasing his right to godhood.
He disciplined Himself to walk a path of deconstruction
to ultimately become
the cornerstone of a construction project
that continues to this day.”
LL Barkat, ‘Stone Crossings, Finding Grace in Hard and Hidden Places’
So much about this passage spoke to me:
Jesus as our Sabbath in action,
not just as an abstract idea,
but walking out his calling.
He emptied himself to become full;
people thought was The Way to Do Things
built a kingdom not of this world.
Jesus is dismantling some old ways of thinking I’ve had about my walk with Him
and building something new in me.
What is Jesus deconstructing in you?
