*Eternal Perspectives: The Record, Love and Humility*
?As a child movies of Jesus’ life were shown on television on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. I greatly enjoyed these movies but was always very sad and upset about His crucifixion.
? I found myself questioning why Jesus my hero, had to suffer and die the way He did. If He had so much power why did He allow them to cruxify Him? I thought about the many wonderful things He did such as: healing the sick, calming the storms, feeding the multitude, raising the dead including Jairus’ little daughter and teaching the people about God.
? I could not fully accept the explanations given until God opened my heart to receive His great love for me. It was then that I saw why Jesus had to die the way He did.
?The truth is that God’s record in eternity was that Eternal Life would be in His son Jesus Christ.1 John 5:11-12
A part of His plan of salvation was that Jesus would come to earth as a man and although He would live a sinless life, He would actually choose to *become sin for us* and pay the wages of sin, which is death. Romans 6:23
?Out of His great love for us Jesus therefore humbled himself to death on the cross. Today, because of His sacrifice God now has not only one begotten son but many spiritual children. Those of us who choose to believe/obey Him and are born of Him are not just created beings like Adam was but sons of God like Jesus, His first son. 1 Cor 15:45-49
We are to love Him and likewise humble ourselves daily and die to everything that opposes the will and purpose of God.
? *Today is a day many look and yearn for love, some do this in all the wrong places.* However, I assure you that no one will ever love you like Jesus does; body, soul, spirit and destiny.
Maybe you have never understood the amazing love and humility of Jesus that drove Him to die in your place. I urge you to quiet your heart before him today and ask Him to reveal this to you.
*Scripture in Focus:*
?And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:8 KJV
?For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Cor. 5:21 KJV
?For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
Hebrews 2:10 KJV
Jesus’ life is the greatest demonstration of humility and love ever known. He is deserving of worship with your whole heart; the full surrender of your life to Him. For real, He deserves it! Why not recommit or give Him now?
