Hello visitors. I am older (hopefully wiser) than many but not too set in my ways. I love life and my wife. I am a follower of Jesus Christ who has changed my life for the better. I will be adding my photographs, Bible studies, devotionals, quotes and other thoughts–original and borrowed. Unless otherwise noted, all photographs taken by David Nelson. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
My Statement of Faith
I believe in One God, the Creator of all things, visible and invisible.
I also believe. . .
Contrary to many arguments, the Jews did not kill the Lord of Glory—Jesus. Although part of the driving force behind his death, the Jewish leaders were just God-ordained players in this singular historical moment.
Just as He chose Mary for His own reasons, to bear His Son, God used the Jews to carry out His wishes, proving His supernatural love for all mankind.
Words of Jesus leading to His death—
- John 10:11 ~I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd sacrifices his life for the sheep.
- John 10:14-15 ~I am the good shepherd; I know my own sheep, and they know me, just as my Father knows me and I know the Father. So I sacrifice my life for the sheep.
- John 10:17-18 ~The Father loves me because I sacrifice my life so I may take it back again. No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded.
