Daddy's Brag Book

As a gift when Aidan was born, I got a 100-page photo album to fill with pictures of my pride and joy. I finally put some in it today and will be carrying it around everywhere I go. My parents called it a "Daddy's Brag Book" because it's a book, I'm a daddy, and I get to brag about my son. Go figure.

Anyway, I got to thinking about the concept and realized God has one too: the Bible. Everything is a picture of sorts of Jesus (remember a picture equals 1000 words, so 1000 words must equal a picture!). In the Old Testament, every law, poem, proverb, prophecy, history lesson, and list of names points to Jesus. In the Gospels, we meet Jesus in the flesh. And the New Testament all looks back to the cross or forward to His imminent return.

What a wonderful idea God had! I can't wait to share my brag book with everyone I meet!
