Hello everyone and welcome to my Good Friday writing, on Moments Spent with God! Today, I truly pray; that God will work with our hearts, in a way that will cause us to deeply connect with Him!
As we begin, I thought we’d journey back together…to a time, when the greatest act of love and forgiveness was ever shown. No matter how much we love or care for someone in our lives; that love will never compare to the sacrificial love that took place on an old rugged cross…thousands of years ago.
When we think back to the time, when Jesus first made His triumphant entrance into Jerusalem, we remember those, who laid palm branches down, while shouting, “Hosanna to the Son of David.” This became the time, when the people loved and adored Jesus…that is until a time came, when they would have to choose between Him and Barabbas.
As Jesus stood before them, with blood dripping from His body, due to the flogging that took place at that time…He was now facing rejection, from a crowd of people that once praised His name; but through all the pain and rejection…His love stood strong and above the moments; that would bring any one of us down.
No one can ever fully understand the extent of what took place at that time; but one thing I do know; is that Jesus became the sacrificial lamb; that would lay upon an alter called a cross, to become the complete sacrifice, for the entire world. It was this act of love and forgiveness for all mankind; that would become a one-time sacrifice; that would live on forever.
How many times have we searched and searched, for someone who could show us a perfect love…a love that would never walk away…a love that would always be there for us? After all that searching…here stands a love before us…offering Himself freely to us and all we have to do is accept that love and allow that love to move deep within the heart and work in a way; that no other love can.
Today, are we going to join the crowd that had at one time rejected Jesus and walk away from a love that can save and forgive us? Are we going to turn our backs on the One, who longs so much to share a love that we have never known before…and are we going to reject this love that can save us from total destruction?
One thing I have learned in my life; is that words are just words…spewed from the mouth; but action demonstrates a heart that longs to truly connect with God. Can we say today; that we long to connect with a love that can be everything to us? If you have never had a chance to experience this love that I’m talking about today; then just say this little prayer… “Lord Jesus…I am a sinner and I’ve never had a chance to experience your love and forgiveness; but today, I long for your love to enter my heart and for you to forgive me of my sins. Come into my heart Lord Jesus…I am yours.”
No matter what we face and no matter what we walk through in life, we can overcome these difficulties because of the One, who gave His only life for us; that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish but have everlasting life.
Blessings on your day!
It’s Always & Only Because of Him…Diane
