Went to church this morning with2 of my kids, eldest and youngest, my second child was at his aunt’s house (she took him with her without my permission), which made me a lil bit uneasy as I am teaching my kids now the habit of going to church regularly, and reading the Bible.
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. ~Proverbs 22:6
Anyway, it’s not what this post is all about.
So we went to church, celebrating and remembering the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.A victoriousday where our Lord has defeated death.
At the church there were 2 big projectors and before the service started the music ministry sang a worship song and the passion of the Christ movie where played, the part where Jesus was nailed on the cross. Being deaf that I am, I did not know what song was being sung so my eyes was at the projector, I held back my tears and stopped watching, It crossed my mind, seeing my Lord’s blood all over his face and his body this is how He suffered just to save me, this is how much pain he endured so I can have eternal life with him. I remembered a friend told me once, during my worst trial, she said the pain I am feeling is not even 1/4th of what Jesus had… so true.
All that we’ve been through and what we are going to go through will never ever be compared to what Jesus has suffered for us.
Watching the part where the nail was being hammered, driven through his hands, I flinched, remembering how scared I am of needles, up to now I even shed tears when I get injection, how much more with that thick nail hammered through his hands, how painful could that be? I fought tears again, when I glanced at my left side, I saw the old lady beside me crying.
I felt too little in God’s grace, and humbled. God’s grace and love for humankind is so big and great, this is what Jesus did so we can have forgiveness for our sins.
And Jesus said…
… he that taketh not his cross and followeth after me is not worthy of me. ~Matthew 10:38
Jesus is alive! His death and resurrection is our hope that we will have eternal life with Him, that we can reach God the Father through Him.
That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. ~John 3:15
Jesus Is Alive
Hallelujah Jesus is alive
Death has lost its victory
And the grave has been denied
Jesus lives forever
He’s alive, He’s alive
He’s the alpha and omega
the first and last is He
the course of sin is broken
and we are perfect liberty
the Lamb of god has risen
He’s alive, He’s alive
Hallelujah,Jesus is alive
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ~John 3:16
