Receive Not Achieve

Between the bill and the head of a woodpecker is a sponge like bone called the cancellous. It absorbs the shock and prevents potential trauma to the bird as it’s out there doing life. 

(I think this is one of God’s love notes to us all!)

The same God that loved enough to cancel the deadly harm that would come to this little bird, is the very same God who loved enough to come between life and death for us. Our God canceled our debt as He Himself absorbed the shock and trauma of our sin on the cross to offer us a rescue to all who would receive Jesus as Savior!

No shock that He’s in all the details! Maybe if we stop trying to achieve what we can only receive we might begin experiencing the rest and peace that passes understanding in Him. 

that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.” For God so loved the world that he have his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:15-16

Believe and receive.
