I have not written a blog in a long time...I usually struggle with what to type. I think I will just 'journal' my thoughts...so feel free to view my journal today!!
John 19:18, "Here they crucified Him, and with two others-one on each side and Jesus in the middle."
Yikes! The sins in my life could easily have put me on one of the other two crosses. What if that had been me? Would I have been hard hearted and mocked Jesus along with the crowd...completely ignorant to just Who I was mocking? Or...would I have recognized the Son of God...would I have asked to be with Jesus?
Oswald Chambers said, " In the cross we may see the dimensions of divine love. The cross is not the cross of a man, but the exhibition of the heart of God." Do I see that? Can I reconcile in my mind that God's heart was shown on a cross? Can I truly see that sacrifice and pain equaled love...complete love? Do I whole-heartedly believe that? Wow...I don't think I can fully comprehend...
Most holy God...perfect Father...thank you for Jesus. Thank you for being willing to send your son to be the perfect sacrifice for me. Thank you that His death on the cross was NOT the end! It is hard to comprehend that He had to die in order that I could live eternally with You. I am humbled. I am thankful. I cannot sacrifice enough to even compare...but what I give, I give all to you. Thank You, Lord. Amen.
