Sooooo tonight Bishop was preaching about calvary. And he was using the verse, "he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him" (Isaiah 53:2) and Bishop says that this scripture was talking about CALVARY, when Jesus died for us there was NO Beauty to be seen when you looked at him on the cross.
He went on to say that he believes that Jesus was a VERY HANDSOME MAN!!! I'm like AMEN!!! TOTALLY agreeing with Bishop...annnnnnd weeeeeelllll...I guess I was nodding my head A LITTLE too excitedly at this point, because Pastor was sitting behind me and whispers, Calm Down! He wasn't BLACK!!! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
( back in the day, at youth camps us LPC girls would go around and tell me people that we believed Jesus to be THE MOST HANDSOMEST man to everrrr live! Then someone threw Isaiah 53:2 at us and we went running to Bishop, who was then our pastor, with it! And he had us set whoever said that to us STRIAGHT!!! He said, that's talking about CALVARY!!!)
Afterwards when we were all at Chili's, I said, YES, annnnnd see, that's JUST how good looking Jesus was, HE wasn't EVEN BLACK, annnnnnnnnd he was STILL HANDSOME!!! That's MY JESUS!!!
Woot! WOOOOOOOT!!!♥Mary Frances :)
