HE BORE HIS CROSS NOW WE NEED TO BEAR OURS.
I watched the movie again tonight, THE PASSION OF CHRIST.
I have been getting a little tired of the lies from satan directed this way–all the lies blatantly told about me over several months while I was told by the LORD to keep quiet and not respond to defend myself and instead do what HE has set out for me to do. Then I watched this movie.
REALITY CHECK. JESUS endured it ALL for us.
HE was unfriended, gossiped and lied about, called names, shunned, spat on, kicked, punched, whipped, his flesh was torn off.
HE went with out food, was disappointed and let down, bore the weight of the world on HIS shoulders-literally, was nailed down naked, left for all to jeer at and disrespect, then HE took HIS last breaths right before they stabbed his side with a spear.
HE sits at the Right Hand of the FATHER and HE did all of this to save HIS bride and HIS children from eternal destruction–that is us!
THANK YOU LORD, THERE IS NO ONE LIKE YOU — EVER!
HE BORE HIS CROSS AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO ENDURE IS YOUR CROSS TO BEAR TOO.
Just keep moving towards HIM — it is all worth it for HE IS WORTHY!
OH, AND THE GLARING AMAZING GOD THING JESUS DID WAS TO KEEP SILENT–HE DID NOT ANSWER THEM TO DEFEND HIMSELF–HE ENDURED THE LIES WITH OUT SAYING HE WAS INNOCENT!!!!
