Higher Everyday TEXT: “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not” (1 John 3:1).
The award winning movie, The Passion of the Christ, written by Gibson and Benedict Fitzgerald in 2004, x-rays the final twelve hours of Jesus on His way for crucifixion. The movie vividly shows the agony and the unbearable pains that Jesus went through as He was carrying the heavy Cross and at the same time being beaten mercilessly with iron stripes by the Roman soldiers down to nailing Him on the Cross.
The emotion packed film does show to some extent the incomparable sacrifice of Christ to redeem humanity from sin and hell. The forgiveness of sins and salvation of our souls will not be possible without the love of God. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). The point is that: Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power? Don’t allow the sacrifice of Christ to be in vain in your life. Embrace the love Jesus now before it is too late.
CHALLENGE: Let’s reciprocate the love of God.
QUOTE: Embrace the love of Jesus now.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, strengthen me to spread your love.
