Prepare the Cake Mix! Josey's Six!

Six years ago today a great warrior came into this world that is in such desperate need of a hero.  I don't know about you, but since that time all manner of dragons and pirates and dinosaurs and robbers and bad guys have been successfully driven away from my own hearth and home.

In the present era this mighty champion counts the following among his dearest God-given pleasures...

... his weapons...

...chewing gum (apparently awesome gladiators LOVE to chew gum)...

And physically tackling his brother on the trampoline!

Joseph, my prayer for you on this birthday is that you will always trust the Greater Warrior for your salvation, your righteousness, your hope, your wisdom, your sanctification, your redemption, and your greatest triumph ever... the triumph over sin and death and Satan that He has won for you.    

Remember that the first word we have about Christ is a promise that he will be our Mighty Warrior, our Victorious Champion, the True Hero for which our  hearts are longing.  God said (in the serpent's face), "I will put enmity between you and the woman and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel."  ~ Genesis 3.15

"The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you."
~ Romans 16.20
