Oprah Proves Jesus Is The Way!

Oprah Proves Jesus Is The Way! That's right Oprah has done it and she didn't even know she was doing it. You may be asking yourself, "How?" That is a great question to ask and if you are not looking for it you will miss it. You see there are spiritual lessons all around us and we miss them. We have our attention in other places, our ears listening to other things, and our eyes are looking the wrong way.

Imagine one day you realize that you are not who you think you have been all your life. Let's say one day you find out that you are really the child of someone else and all your life you have been raised as someone else. Suddenly you are given a wonderful gift and you are the child of someone famous, "royalty" if you will and you are part of the family.

Many of you know my testimony of being raise by a family that I had been given to as a baby. I was given to my 'mother' in a bar by my birth mother and raised by another. Imagine one day that you find out you are not who you think you are. You find out like one lady did just a month or so ago that your sister is Oprah Winfry who is extremely wealthy, royalty to many in our world today.

So when I look at this I see Jesus. Jesus you see said to you and me that to all that received him he gives us the right, privilege, the opportunity to be called 'sons' (and daughters) children of God. IF you are a believer and you have accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord then you are a child of God. If you are child of God then you have a brother that is truly Royal, you see he is a prince, a Lord, King of Kings, and he loves us. When I see what has happened with Oprah over the last few weeks it is easy for me to see Jesus as the older, bigger brother, who gives us opportunity like we have never seen. We will never be able to repay him for what he has done for us.

This means that we can hold our heads high. We are the ones that have received an inheritance that will rival anything that Oprah or any king or queen could ever give us; eternal life!

So this week when Oprah found out she had a half sister that she was never aware of her sister can benefit from it because of who her big sister is. As I see spiritual examples in the world I like to call them out, talk about them and look at them closely. It makes sense to me.

So to Oprah thanks, and 'ain't it great' that Oprah Proves Jesus Is The Way?

Glad to see you back in the blogosphere, Steve! I always look forward to your blogs because they are so helpful and devotional.

I guess I should watch or read the news more often. I had no idea about this Oprah deal.

It is certainly amazing that by grace through faith in Jesus, God adopted us. For all who believe, God is our Father, Christ is our brother, and the Spirit is His personal presence and power. Even more amazing is the way in which our adoption was made possible. Our brother Jesus died for all who believe, redeeming us and paving the way for our adoption.

You are certainly right, Steve, when you say, "We will never be able to repay Him for what He has done for us." Amen! Instead of repaying, rejoice!
