When Christ Outgrew

Listening When He Speaks

We were blessed beyond measure each and every time Jesus Christ outgrew the fabric that had been wrapped about Him.


“Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.”

And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.

0160sdThen, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split.

But Peter arose and ran to the tomb; and stooping down, he saw the linen cloths lying by themselves; and he departed, marveling to himself at what had happened.



(Luke 2:10-12; Matthew 27:50&51; Luke 24:12 NKJV)

    Rats. Hit the wrong button. When Lockridge yells, “AND THE GRAVE COULDN’T HOLD HIM!… YEAH, THAT’S MY KING!”

    • That’s our King, indeed!

      And that analogy? Well, it came to me in 3 bits as I was putting text to that image. Then when the scriptures ran together like that… wow. God is grande!
