In the midst of all the crosses pain, Jesus not once complained. When they spat on him and mocked him, he opened not his mouth. When they were driving those nails into his hands and into his feet Jesus never said please stop. When they hated him so much as to whip him and beat him unrecognizable and crucified him,he never doubted his calling, he never doubted his sonship place, for he cried Father. When all had forsaken him and when all the world stood before his blood pouring out all over the place and said to him, He saved others, let him save himself now. If he be the son of God let him now come down off the cross that we may believe. Jesus never looked to others to assure himself of who he was in God and in all that pain and suffering Jesus never doubted nor questioned the fathers love. But he did say Father, forgive them, they are blind. They have no idea what they have done. They are the lost...Forgive them....
When Jesus came into our world he
knew the world would not know him and that his own flock were blind to
who he really was. He knew that most of the world would despise and hate
him, yet he gave his life for their salvation anyway. Friends as
rewarding as it is for us to submit and to serve God, following Jesus in
this world will have its positive and negative prices. For three years
Jesus rejoiced and laughed often in the Holy Spirit with his disciples.
But the persecution was also a thorn and the day of the Cross like
fire.....deno.....please share freely....
Always remember the positive
and the negative prices in following Christ. That way when the thorn that persecutes
appears and the Cross comes, you will be mentally prepared and you know
that it is all together (in this life) included in the cost for
submitting and serving Jesus in this present evil world that is more and more being filled up with the spirit of AntiChrist...
