For everything…His character…His goodness…His compassion…His response to questions…His attitude…His selflessness…His love. No matter what our struggle is, no matter where we are in life…Jesus has an example of how we should try to respond, react, proceed. This morning I read about one of the most unbelievable things He did…while hanging on the Cross, blood draining out of His body…taking the punishment we and those who put Him there deserve, He spoke these words:
“Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”[a] And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.”
No matter what is happening in your life turn towards Jesus Christ, learn from Him and you will find peace. Amen.
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.”
