Heavenly Father…..I wish to honor You on behalf of all those who submit to this website, to those who read all about Your Glory and Grace. What a blessed time of year, the celebration of Eternal Life given through Your Son, who died on that Rugged Cross so many years ago. To be punished and hurt, to be scorned and driven down, to be whipped and mocked, and then to hung on wood as punishment in the eyes of an unjust court. But, what is amazing….that through all the pain and suffering that Jesus went through, He still taught us! Jesus cried out through His pain, not just because He was taking the sin of the world on His shoulders, but because He was full of our sin, God turned His Face from His Precious Son! Evidence that there can be no sin in the presence of God! Not even His Own Son can be in Heaven, because Jesus was full of our sin. How that must have pained Jesus, to be separated by sin from His Father Who Art In Heaven! That is why I believe Christ sweated blood! Christ volunteered to give up His life and die for our sins, so it was not the pain of a human He felt. It was the pain of being separated from His Father, full of sin! But God, in His Glory, through Christ was there when Christ rose from the grave of despair and gave us an example of our Resurrection! Amen and Amen! What a sacrifice! What glory! We know that because Christ died for us, and then rose again, that we, when we die, will rise again in glory and in the Presence of God! Thank God for that gift! Enjoy this season of celebration and put the Love of God and the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior in your heart. Carry it with you every day through every season!
Sharon, 2 Corinthians 5:8
