Celebrating My Birthday with the People I Love Most

Yesterday was my birthday and we traveled down to Sight and Sound in Lancaster to see Behold the Lamb. It was very powerful. They really brought to life the personalities and relationships during the time Jesus performed His miracles until He was seated at the right hand of the Father.

My eyes were glued to the stage and I especially enjoyed watching Jesus minister to the people. So much of it struck me as applicable to life now....the people shunning the blind man and the disciples arguing over who is! That's us today! And, through it all, Jesus poured out His amazing LOVE, wisdom and peace. He didn't rant and rave (except at the temple, but that was righteous anger). It terrified me to think of what would have happened if He was unable to resist temptation...even just one time. Can I even get through one day with strength like that? Can anyone?

All in all it was a wonderful afternoon/evening spent with my family and drawing closer to Jesus.
