If you're looking for a syrupy sweet post, you might want to look somewhere else.
Do you get tired of the finger pointing? It's his fault, it's her fault, it's their fault. They are prideful.
Then you examine your own heart and you find the finger is pointing right smack-dab in the middle of you. Then you start listing the differences between you and the "corrupt" people.
Then you see that the only difference between you and them is J-E-S-U-S.
This week I examined my heart and found that I am not loving as I should. Being hard hearted is an easy trap for me to fall into.
I urge you this Easter weekend to let your "difference" shine.
Pray for the ignorant. Pray for the lost. Take a stand and kneel for the glory of JEHOVAH, FATHER.
Today, long ago Jesus gave his life for all.
Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?”
Some of those who stood there, when they heard that, said, “This Man is calling for Elijah!” Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge, filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink.
The rest said, “Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to save Him.”
And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit.
Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.
So when the centurion and those with him, who were guarding Jesus, saw the earthquake and the things that had happened, they feared greatly, saying, “Truly this was the Son of God!”
Matthew 27:45-54 (NKJV)
How many will you give your life for? Did you know that Jesus asks you to lose your life for HIM and the brothers? (1 John 3:16)
Can you picture the veil being torn (60 feet high, 30 feet wide, 4 inches thick), the earth is trembling, and the bodies arise?
Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11
