What Jesus demonstrated in the Cruz,
was that a human being can live a holy life.
- The people told him to leave the city
- Accused of having demons
- Accused of blasphemy
- Accused of casting demons away by Beelzebub.
- Betrayed by his closest friends
- disbelieved by his own people and even family members
- Innocently condemned to die
- Was hungry
- Was thirsty
- Was humiliated
- Paid with un-gratefulness
With all these,
- The Lord’s moth did not open to curse anyone.
- Jesus healed many
- Live without anything for the sake of the gospel
- He healed the guardian who came to put him in jail.
- He forgave those who kill him
- He remain silent
- He did not lose his temper.
- He pray, many times without sleep
- He felt compassion and performed miracles
When I am in trouble, and I think on what Jesus did, I can feel the courage to continue.
And if I had done less than what is expected from me as a believer, I can feel ashamed of myself like Peter and I repent.
Jesus is our example on any difficult or easy situation. Because he did it, we can do it.
He is the first Adam of a new generation. A group that do not seek for their own benefit, but for the kingdom of God.
Is 1:18 “Come now, let us reason together,” says the LORD. “Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.
16 wash and make yourselves clean.
Take your evil deeds
out of my sight!
Stop doing wrong,
17 learn to do right!
encourage the oppressed. [a]
Defend the cause of the fatherless,
plead the case of the widow.
18 “Come now, let us reason together,”
says the LORD.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.
