Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone, but if it dies, it produces much grain – John 12 : 24.
God sent His One and only Son to us to take away our sins and problems from mankind. He came and suffered for what He did not comite. He was mocked including His people. ”And Nathanel said to him, can anything good come out of Nazareth?’‘ – John 1 : 46. Some even say, is it not the carpentar’s Son? Being a carpentar’s Son, can that change what God has put inside of Him – NO. Only the Almighty God knows what He has placed inside you. We should not allow what people say about us to ruin or change our perspective because our life is not in the hand of men but rather it is in the hand of God.
Jesus came as a seed and suffered in the cross and was later buried and on the third day He ressurrected. It is the fruit of His ressurrection that the whole world is celebrating everyday and yet children yet unborn are still coming to celebrate this fruit. Before His death, mentioning His name cannot produce any miracle, He cannot be called in different places, He cannot appear in different places but after His resurrection, we can now call on His name in different places no matter how many people are calling on His name and no matter how many places His name is being called, He will surely respond and this is the joy and victory of His ressurrection.
After His resurrection, we are now brought close to the Father because of His blood. He gave open check to us to fill in whatever figure we want. The most painful part of this joy is that many people are not prepared to take this check and fill it. I believe we should be very grateful and appreciative for what He has done for us.
Father, I thank You for what You have done for us by sending Your Only Son to come and die for us. Give us the grace to recognise this great suffering that Your Son has suffered for us. Give us the grace to walk in holiness, in purity and in sanity in Jesus name. Jesus, I thank You for accepting to sacrifice Your blood for us undermining that we did not merit it. Thank You Lord for giving us a listening ear to You when You call us. May Your name be glorified forever in Jesus name.
