Christ worked out the greatest redemption for us on the cross, however the body was weak, yet the Spirit prevailed and thus we are truly blessed today.
"saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.""
Luke 22:42 (New King James Version)
Hearing a beautiful song yesterday which was about the cross of Christ, I was thinking, what if Christ would not have died for us, each one of us then would be subject to judgement and we would truly never have known the grace of God.
Probably we would have still viewed God as an angry judge rather than a loving Father.
Thank God that He died and rose again for us, in the great process of crucifixion and resurrection Christ has given us new life.
Dear Ones!!! How privileged are we for God's love and thus should we not have compassion on those who do not know this great love of God and the redemption that God has worked even for them.
It was the Father's will that we should live and thus for our sake He bore our sins and died instead of us.
I am lifted up to the heavens by the great grace of God which I could never have attained by my own strength or deeds.
Having experienced and known the great love of God and the cost that God had to pay to make us blessed, we also should boldly say in the trials of our life, 'Lord not my will, but Your will be done.', for we know that in everything, God has a great and awesome blessing in store for us.
Yesterday's Q of :- Nehemiah 5
Q :- Why did Nehemiah did not exploit the people as the other governor's did who were before him?
A :- But the former governors who were before me laid burdens on the people, and took from them bread and wine, besides forty shekels of silver. Yes, even their servants bore rule over the people, but I did not do so, because of the fear of God.
