The Hebrew word picture meaning for "Son" is: the life of the family.
"Born" means hand of authority on the door.
The Hebrew word picture meaning for "given" is Life, covenant life.
Yeshua's birth (and death) gave Him the authority to open the way for us to experience and enjoy the covenant life of God's family.
In the midst of the celebrations, let us take time to renew covenant with the one who was born to die that we might have life.
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
What does the backside of the tapestry of your life look like?
Mine looks pretty messy!!
But as I reflect on scripture I'm encouraged by the fact that the backside of Moses life was messy (murderer), the backside of Jacob"s life was messy (liar/deceiver), the backside of Peter's life was messy (impulsive, deserter) and then there is David (adulterer, murderer).
Were Moses, Jacob, Peter and David examples of God's workmanship?
David was described as a man after God's own heart.
Perhaps it is simply a matter of learning how to flip over the tapestry of life and see what God's workmanship actually looks like.
