Hi, guys, it’s Berta again, I’m on the bus on my way to work and this came back to my mind, and I just felt the need to share it with you guys.
I kept asking myself, why in the past I never believed and appreciated or should I say Honor the act Jesus Christ did on the cross for my sins, and also why don’t many believe in HIM and HIS love for us.
3- He was despised and rejected a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care.4- Yet it was our weakness he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! 5- But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.6- All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the sins of us all.
Check this out guys, imagine if you were a mean bad person, selfish, imagine if you were a thief, murderer or locked up in jail for something that you were actually guilty of, and one day during your times of imprisonment, or of wicked acts or even of sufferings.
Your dad would allow your brother, ( perhaps some would say I don’t have a brother, well your sister ) to do the time in your place, or take up the sufferings, or even take the death sentence in your place, wouldn’t you honor them and be grateful all your life? And what if he gave you few bits of advice before living, so you can carry on a better and happy life, wouldn’t you also honor their memory by obeying?
Well, friends, this is the same thing with Jesus Christ, some of us are liars, thieves, homosexuals, murderers, selfish, bitter and the list goes on. But our father the I AM? allowed HIS one and only perfect obedient son, to take up all our pain, our wicked acts, our place, our death sentence so we can continue to live, to be free, happy, shameless.
And his advice to us for a better life is found in the new testament example (Matthew, mark, luke). So isn’t it logical to honor HIM honor HIS memory and follow the advice He gives us to live a joyful life? His action is an act of love that in my opinion deserves to be honored for the eternity of times.
I’m not telling you what to do, but I’m advising you to think of what you just read and do what you think is right.
See you soon
