Those Who Were Angry With Him
God is not helpless, powerless, and weak and He can never be intimidated by anyone or anything.
“So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way.”
Truth often attracts opposition, however truth can never be destroyed or killed, it will make its way through the midst of all to reach its blessed destiny.
Of the many instances our Lord was opposed while in this earth, the above is one of them, those who were angry with Him wanted to throw Him down the cliff to destroy Him, yet what Christ said will always remain true….
“Therefore My Father loves Me, because I lay down My life that I may take it again. No one takes it from Me, but I lay it down of Myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from My Father.”
John 10:17-18 NKJV
Our Lord was not killed, rather He gave Himself as a substitute for us, to bear our sins on the cross, so having paid this great price for our sins, we may stand unblemished before Him choosing to live a holy life for Him.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Romans 12:1-2 (NKJV)
We have to present our lives as a holy and acceptable sacrifice to the Lord God, for that is God’s basic requirement from us.
We also need to be changed/transformed in accordance to the blessed will of God for our life and in this process we need to say ‘NO’ to all worldly evils and passions and then shall we see the true results of our transformation.
Let us always remember that we follow the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, and as He is so should we be, ‘Be bold and truthful in all we do and endeavor with all of our strength to fulfill God’s perfect will in our lives’.
