The TRAPP – 12.17.2020

10 HIM battled the frigid 28 degree weather this morning.
@Kwame, @Pancreas, @Chowdah, @Three’s Company, @Heidi, @Joey Freshwater, @2Buck, @Dizzy Gillespie, FNG (Cowboy Curtis), and YHC @Peewee

I’m glad my next door neighbor finally came to an AO after EHing him twice a day for a year 

It was GREAT to be back out there with everyone this morning after a month away.  I really missed you guys!  You might even say the TRAPP was a TRIPP down memory lane (some of you will appreciate that reference from this morning 

We ran somewhere in 4-5 mile range (please chime in if you logged your run).
No wild animal sightings this morning, but we were able to enjoy a nice sunrise from the top of the hill before moseying back to the parking lot.

Prayer requests (I’ll probably forget some)
-Dizzy Gillespie’s work situation
-2buck’s job search
-praise God for Chowdah’s wife’s work situation…prayers answered!
-those less fortunate who are in need this time of year
“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭7:14‬ ‭ESV‬‬
Immanuel means “God with us”
Fun fact: only quote attributed to Jesus in the New Testament that is not included in one of the four gospels as well:
“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ””
‭‭Acts‬ ‭20:35‬ ‭ESV‬‬
Tying these two scriptures together, how can we be like Jesus and be “with others” ?  Jesus left heaven and lived among man.  He left the blessings and status in heaven to become a humble servant on earth.  Can we leave our comfort zones and search out opportunities to serve and provide for the needs of others?  Who can we serve that is not in a position to repay us anything? Probably a good place to start, and to finish.  The king of heaven entered humanity in a humble manger, and finished his humanity by humbly offering himself as our replacement on the cross, paying our debt of sin.  We can’t repay it. We can’t earn it.  But we can show it and share it with others by our words and purposeful actions.
